I installed an XBit (after much trouble, had to clean d0 point and scrape and align it perfectly but it fixed my bad TSOP flash). Anyways, I flashed 3 Bioses into mode 5 I believe. 3 256k BIOSes, how do I select a specific BIOS to boot? I want to load the GentooX bios so I can install Linux. But its loaded the 1st programmed bios, which is xecuter. How does the DIP switches select a specific BIOS, it just selects a specific bank right? Im a bit lost, I just used to TSOP flash so this bank stuff is a bit confusing, any help is greatly appreciated.

It selects the bank but that bank has 3 BIOSes flashed into 3 seperate 256k areas. How do I select say , bank 5, then the 2nd 256k area? So it boots a specific BIOS? The XBIT website isn't very clear on this
