Ok, perfetct!
I have search on the internet but I don't find an example.
If, in a normal grub configuration file I have:

title Ubuntu
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20

I replace this in "Kernel command line" coreboot option with...?
Can you post an example?
...and in my sample grub conf is specified the root (root=/dev/hda1). 
Where is specified in the coreboot? I must pass it always in the "kernel 
command line" option? How?

After the correct point of init process I will have to do a 
modifications on a source of the PcEngine alix1c file config because I 
have another mobo (IB520). It's correct?
...or recovery and try with a alix1c board for verify the correct rom build.

Thank you very much for the help.
If I complete correctly the build, download, etc.. I will write a simple 
pdf howto for the person (like me) that know a lot little the coreboot
