Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

My Thinkpad 600E (type 2645-4A0) originally comes with Intel PentiumII 366 MHz processor (MMC-2/Dixon core). I plan to change it to PentiumIII 450 - processor, which is known to run ok on 600E, but will generate error 127 (Cache error) in bios post phase. Anyway with a couple of clicks the bios starts to boot operating system.

Official support for PentiumIII comes in Thinkpad 600X series.

My question is how to open the IBM bios binary file for 600E and 600X and compare them

I have tried Award tools (CBROM, MODBIN, MODBIN2, MODBIN6) which don't seem to work for IM bios.
