INT 16 - AMI BIOS - BIOS-FLASH Interface - GET VERSION NUMBER

	AX = E000h
Return: CF clear if successful
	    AL = FAh
	    BX = version number (BCD) (0200h = v2.00)
	CF set on error (not implemented)
Notes:	this interface is available on AMI BIOSes built from AMI core version
	  8/8/93 (HiFlex BIOS) or 11/15/93 (WinBIOS) or later
	the "Meningitis" virus uses this API when attacking a system equipped
	  with an AMI BIOS; it is supposedly able to write itself into the
	  Flash ROM and thus make itself part of the BIOS
