Thanks for your reply, Joseph. Sounds quite encouraging. Could you
suggest, what I can start with? Qemu maybe? Do you think there would
be a need for a lot of programming?
I hope I would be able to handle this. Any I will surely need quite
some help... It's been quite a while since I last wrote any
significant portion of code.

What did you mean I should look for at http://www.coreboot.org/Laptop?
I didn't notice anything much related to my hardware there. Probably I
do not yet associate the therms with each other too well.
