bios replacement

i dunno much about mobos, so i thought i'd ask for help here. :p

i have a VERY old socket 5 mobo with an amd 100mHz cpu that my sister wanted to use in her room for a word processing machine. unfortunately, it has a very outdated 1994 American Megatrends bios, which doesn't detect the CDROM drive. i was wondering if i can replace this AMI bios, and if i can, what type/kind of bios do i replace it with?

thanks for any help.

um, can i know it by looking at the mobo? :emb: it was bought years ago pre-assembled, so i don't have the mobo box with me no more.
something tells me this is going to be harder than i thought. anyway, can i just download the bios from a manufacturer's page? is it free?
