Please reply to the list; many BGA chips could be used in interesting
Commodore hardware projects.

I don't have any personal experience on soldering BGA, but have you
considered mounting the chip on the board with some heat-resistant tape
or glue, and then putting it in an oven?  If I were to build something
with BGA chips, I'd design the board so that there are BGA chips only
on one side, and I'd solder these parts first.  The rest can be done
with a soldering iron.
