I've generally thought of this as somewhat moot.  Whenever I have this 
problem, I saw open the battery chamber, extract the old battery, and 
epoxy a button cell holder to the top.  I don't know what happened to the 
battery replacement page at http://www.bhargavaz.net/nvram/, but it looks 
like someone saved a .doc version of it at 
There you can see a picture of what I did with my IPX's idprom.  The fix 
works perfectly and nothing is rattling around the motherboard.
