So far this is what I have been able to get working.

1) I can compile coreboot with FILO and it boots to a filo prompt.  
Tried to get it to boot from a CD but no luck.
2) I can compile LAB and the kernel boots,  there is a exception tap 
when it goes to run linuxrc.  This seems to be tied up with using uClibc. 
3) I have not tried any of the other payloads yet.
