ASUS ISA-486SI Motherboard BIOS

I think this just makes the "10 year rule".

I have an ASUS ISA-486SI motherboard, Copyright 1992.
I have the manual for it. The manual does NOT describe
any sort of BIOS upgrade, such as reflashing it, like later
boards in my collection do. All the ASUS Web sites and a
Google search reveal no BIOS upgrading information.

Was this too early for BIOS reflashing? The BIOS is not
Y2K compliant. It appears to work OK when I set the
current date/time, and when I turn it OFF/ON, it retains
the current date >2000 without problem.

Anyone have any experience with this motherboard? It was
my original 486 back in 1992, but I haven't used it for
over two years.
