Later tonight (would've been a few days ago, but I've been sick), I
should have a set of patches to get the i810 up and running on the asus
mew-vm, those should make a very good starting point for the i815.  The
biggest differences between the two are the 2 additional dram slots and
a second agp controller for off-chip video. I was going to do the 815
myself, but the IDE controller on my board has gone kaput. You'll also
need both the datasheet and the specification update from Intel's
website, just use the search function, "82815 datasheet" should get you
what you need.
