[LinuxBIOS] Motherboard exchange?

I have a Chaintech Apogee 7NJL1 board, still unboxed. It has an Nvidia
nForce2 chipset, an ITE IT8712F superio chip, Socket-A (AMD K7) cpu slot
and a socketed flash chip.

It has lot of goodies inside, see for example
http://www.motherboard.cz/mb/chaintech/7NJL1.htm for detailed listing.

As K7 motherboards are not supported (according to the wiki), this would
be a good challenge to add code for it, while the chipset has probably
already support in LinuxBIOS v2 making the job easier.

I am willing to donate this to someone doing the job. Also I am seeking
a donation: a board which is already (partly) suppoted by v2 and can
accept an Intel CPU with SSE3 (preferably SSE4) support (as a plus it
could have a socketed flash chip :).

Anyone interested?

(I am based in Europe, this is the preferred region to avoid high
shipping costs.)
