[coreboot] Tinkering with old and new motherboards

I have an old motherboard which I'd like to experiment on and have my eyes 
on a bleeding-edge board.  The old one is a Shuttle AN35N Ultra (socket 
1).  The new one is an MSI 990FXA-GD80V2 (socket AM3+).  Neither of these 
appear on the list of supported motherboards.

Tinkering with the old board should be relatively safe because the BIOS 
lives in a socketed PLCC.  I can't seem to figure out what sort of package 
the firmware in the newer one lives in.  None of the photos I've found of 
it seem to have good enough resolution to tell.  Can I get some help here?
