  1. Neither... you don't need to flash the BIOS to install a new CPU. Just clear the CMOS and you should be fine.
  2. What bios do you have. You might have to flash it. I had to and i have the same board you do mine is rev 1. Do you have revision 1 or rev. 2 of that MB? Rev. 2 requires bios FB to run pII 940 shown here http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2931
    or for rev. 1 needs bios F6. shown here http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2800
