I downloaded a BIOS files for a my motherboard, but there is too many files. And I don't know which file I have to use. Do you have some utility for that? Please help.

My BIOs files:

Important Note:
===============
Due to the significant hardware differences between the "CE Stepping" and older stepping VIA P4M266A Chipsets, the BIOS for the "CE Stepping" is NOT interchangeable with the BIOS for the older steppings (CD, CC). The BIOS for newer PCB Version (-10) is NOT interchangeable with the BIOS for the previous PCB Version (-01/02).

Please identify the exact hardware chipset stepping of the P4M266A (North Bridge BGA Chip), the PCB version, Clock Gen IC type, before picking the target BIOS file for use.


Remark :
========

ID for the BIOS of "CD, CC Stepping" (PCB version -01/02) = 6a6lwpr1
ID for the BIOS of "CE Stepping" (PCB version -10), Clock Gen RTM360-516 = 6a6lwpr0
ID for the BIOS of "CE Stepping" (PCB version -10), Clock Gen RTM360-519 = 6a6lwpr4
