I've got this board I would like to get coreboot flashed on:

1) CPU is a via C3 Nemehia
Northbridge is a VT8623
Southbridge is a VT82xxxxx?

3)  Super I/O: via VT1211

4) Type of BIOS: unknown.
The box cannot be opened easily as the cpu is glued on to the case...
Which is why I would rather make sure it is possible to flash before I 
start damaging the box.
I've dumped the 256MB bios using the 'flashrom' utility.
