Hi, I'm waiting on getting my 5500 any day now. My question is: Is it safe to flash any AGP 5500 BIOS to the latest 1.18? I ask because maybe 5500's have different memory configurations or something, like different revisions, and one BIOS will not work for all.

Or is it generally safe?

my voodoo5500 was 1.06 BIOS and I flashed it to 1.18
and had no troubles

be shore to have a second card that you can put in the system in case the flash goes bad

you will be able to use the second card to reflash the voodoo5500

Note, I'm jade flacon on Vogons.
