Try setting ROM_SIZE in the mainboard Config.lb to your rom size (512k?)
and ROM_IMAGE_SIZE in the targets/ Config.lb to 0x16000 or 0x17000
instead of 0x10000 or whatever it is.

Yes, there is a good chance. It wont happen instantly though. Try the
above and try to get an image out of it.
I am in the same process for another i855 board, but I dont get any
serial output yet. (In my case either the onboard microcontroller keeps
the machine in reset or the superio driver is not working yet)
If you have a little bit of patience and passion, we might try to get
this working together.
