The IDPROM contents are invalid

It seems like the battery of the NVRAM is dead. Can I somewhere get a replacement chip?
I backed up the output of the Banner, ok .version, ok printenv and /usr/sbin/prtconf -vp on SunOS 5.9 when it was still working. That should be enough to reprogram it, shouldn't it? How do I reprogram it?

Look up "squirrels SUN NVRAM faq". You can either hack in a 3V battery to your existing MOSTEK chip (also look up) or on newer Sun archs replace.
