This has been answered to death, but here is what I use to read/edit/flash my 6950s in linux.

- Get USB stick
- Make bootable freedos USB sitck with UNetbootin
- Download ATIFlash and put it on the USB stick
- Reboot the miner from USB
- Dump bios from GPU to USB stick
- Reboot to linux
- Install virtualbox
- Create windows VM
- Install RBE on windows VM
- Copy bios dump from USB to windows VM
- Edit bios with RBE
- Save edited bios back to the USB stick
- Reboot miner from USB
- Flash GPU with ATIFlash

You can run RBE through wine just fine. No need to go into a fullblown VM.
