You need to have the docs for the chipset of the mainboard.  A good
place to start is booting linux and then listing the chips with
'lspci'.  If you can't get the docs for your chipset then you have a
really rough road ahead.

Have you gone through the wiki?  There is a lot of good info up there.
 Some of it takes a bit of looking to get to.  As a start go read the
FAQ, Documentation, and Port Guides.  That should get you started.
Some of the Port Guides have a lot of good basic info even if they are
a bit dated.
