Dear Andrew, dear Laura,

we would like to port LinuxBIOS to the MSI K9N Neo-F (Part No.
MS-7260-010) and we may need access to some documentation and
data sheets. We already have some code for the chipset and
expect to get it running soon.
BxShi from the MSI server division has already ported LinuxBIOS
to MS-9185 and is working on MS-9182. He suggested we ask you
for help.

For details about LinuxBIOS, see www.linuxbios.org
Key features are:
* No licensing costs
* Free to modify (GPL license)
* Extremely fast booting (3 seconds)
* Full 32/64 bit code in BIOS
* BIOS written in C and not assembly
* No legacy 16 bit code (optional support for 16 bit
  graphics BIOS)

Could you please give us some help in porting LinuxBIOS to
your fine mainboard?
