Dear Ken,

first off topic.

0. The spelling is coreboot, i. e. all lowercase.
1. Please do not send HTML message to mailing lists [1].
2. Using Gmail Web interface the down side is it wraps line
automatically which is bad if you paste stuff. Since they will not fix
that, you should think about using a mail program.

As Peter wrote, you need to do the port yourself. Two good things
though, coreboot folks will help you if you have problems and your
components seem to be supported. So if you are willing to spend some
time, you should be able to complete that port.

Please read the coreboot Wiki. You need to make sure to recover. Is the
flash chip socketed on your board? If yes, just get some back up chips,
find an already supported board similar to yours, build an image,
connect a second system over serial line to capture debugging output and
work your way through it. If something fails, just boot the system with
your back up flash chip, switch the flash chip and write another
(hopefully improved) image to it.

We are looking forward to your port!
