I have flash Bios ona 200Mhz Pentium machine.  Would I have to buy a new set or would the flash support a Pentium MMX,K6 or 686MX if i just installed it ?  

Thanks

Normally yes, but that's not only a bios-problem. You must be able to change the cpu-voltage-outlet on the board, because MMX or K6 need other voltages. What type of board are you using? If you change it some day, choose a brand-board like Tyan or GigaByte (eventually Asus).
