AwPhuch, to flash the bios you have to copy the patched bios onto the CF card (using a card reader) and then access the bios through the serial port.
The serial port is on the motherboard, it looks like a floppy power connector. It runs in TTL mode, which, I've read, is what is used on PC/104 boards and other embedded devices.
Adapters can be found on the internet to translate TTL to RS232. Then you can connect to the MSNTV box through a serial terminal.
There are a series of commands that can be entered there to flash the bios. Then you just have to put Linux on the CF card.
