Yes Phoenix 4.0 ver 6 is the correct one. At this point I do not care
which one I got to I just want to get the machine back up and working.

They might be able to help you.

Do you know what BIOS it used initially? Was it Phoenix BIOS 4.0 Ver. 
6.0?  It might also be worthwhile then to call Phoenix tech support. ( 
http://www.phoenix.com )

Also, where did you find the wrong BIOS?  Can't you go back there, find 
a new BIOS that will work and flash it to that?  That is, why go back to

the original (which we can't find) when you know it won't support the 
larger hard drives?  The quest should be for a new BIOS that will be 
compatible, no?
