I know about Radeon 8500, but 8500 LE may be different...
The 8500 is the easiest to flash you ever found:
Just  put the Official ATI updater on the Startup Items folder, install the PC card on the Mac and restart...
The oficcial ATI ROM updater flash the PC card version to Mac! LOL

With the 8500LE you probably have to downclok the ROM or reduce the amout of VRAM, I don't know for sure...
