I've accidentally (long story) flashed the bios with the wrong update...for the wrong bios, that is. It won't boot now.

I did make a copy of the old bios, in case of emergencies, as recommended by the manufacturer. However, I don't know the key command to get the old bios back, if its possible at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

you use the same command to flash it as you did the new one, only you need to specify the name of your saved older bios instead of your new (non working) one. they both should be on the floppy disk.

ex: aflash.exe saved.bin (saved.awd; whatever you named it as)

If it can't boot, etc. then you're really SOL. You need to replace the bios now. Goto: to replace or reflash the bios you have, it should all be under $25(check site).
BTW, I have the same mtrbd. and mine failed due to a crashed update, they fixed me up good.

good luck -----Willy
