You need to write code for RAM initialization (northbridge) at the very
minimum. This is usually the hardest and most complex part.

Do you have the respective ATI datasheets for the chipset? Are they
publically available?

Which Super I/O is on your board? You'll need support for that in order
to get serial (debugging) output.
