At one time mrbios.com would sell such BIOS. Remember that it will not be free. This is their business.

If I remember right, Sony sucks for support. The mobo is proprietary so you can't find Intel (or other) info except to carefully select something close to your model, but NOT the bios.
I would bet that your PII 466 CAN'T do a PIII...
