Compaq "corporate" BIOS question

I have a Compaq Ex corporate system that wont accept the use of anything but a network card. Is there a way to remove this BIOS, and replace it with a non-corporate one that will allow me to fit what i want, apart from getting a new motherboard that is?

In most cases, bootable network cards come with the BRIOS chip built onto the NIC.

In some cases, this will override all the functions of the motherboard BIOS, in other it will work in conjunction (though I do believe it can still hijack the system).

You could try removing the network card to see if thsi will work.

Otherwise, i would sugestion contacting one of the many compaq forums dotted around the net.
