So, using the "Award BIOS IDs" link on the homepage, that works out as:
2A59G - Intel Triton VX chipset (Socket 7 based m/b)
G3 - Gemlight
which suggests you try
Hongfaith where it says you have to register - but go to the BIOS page and search for 2A59GG39 to look at the files they list first.

BTW, moderators, the hongfaith link needs updating.
Tested patched BIOSes. Untested patched BIOSes.

Use the "Select Award bios ID" and you will see what I mean...

The three 56I Ex BIOSes are identical (56i112.zip).
Differences:
56i112:
01/13/2000-i430VX-W877-2A59GG39C-00
(2A59GG39) DTKPAM0056I.P02.01.12-V1.12

70i112:
01/13/2000-i430VX-W877-2A59GG39C-00
(2A59GG39) DTKPAM0070I.P02.01.12-V1.12

You should be able to see the DTKPAM00xxI.xxxx on the same screen where you found the BIOS ID string. Check that.
