Hello all!

I just would like to inform the list that during the
last few days I have commenced the adaption of coreboot
to fit the mainboard MS-6147 from MSI. In one of the
settings I have tested, the coreboot ROM successfully
booted via an IDE-to-CF adapter, into a custom built router
(based on Debian Sarge). The test was continued to the point
that I used wget to pull into the router a copy of the
homepage of Debian GNU/Linux. 
As a first contribution, let me mention two suggestion for
patches. Best regards for now!
