[coreboot] i840 coreboot challenge

I want to propose a "coreboot challenge" to first port coreboot to the 
i840 chpset, second port coreboot to support a very rare i840 dual cpu 
board, third instead of RAMBUS (which i840 is designed for) this board 
uses SDRAM. I think this would be a very interesting port for coreboot.

The board is a AMI Megatrends MegaDual. The user manual can be found 
here: http://www.ami.com/support/doc/MegaDual_mb_man.PDF

I have four of these rare boards and am willing to donate three of them 
(one person each, less shipping costs of course) to anyone who is 
willing to take on this challenge. Let me know if your interested.

P.S.: the first person to boot to a Linux command line gets the grand 
prize, a big fat cookie :-)
