Hey,
I am using an arduino melzi board that had the firmware pre-installed. I have read a million posts on updating the firmware but I cannot find any on querying what firmware is already installed. Is there a command to do this and is it possible to download the current setup in case I screw up the software?

Yeah, check some posts by Nick Gammon and others. There are a few sketches floating around that will report on fuses and bootloader versions.
I yield() for co-routines.

Are you talking about the Melzi from RepRap?  Because those are not Arduino boards.

This and a few other tools I've seen ought to be a sticky thread...
