Hi Daniel,

My first (and so far only) experience in installing coreboot was with
the H8DME-2.  http://www.mindspring.com/~jakorty/coreboot.html is a
step-by-step writeup of my experiences.  This page was written up quite
recently (May), so, unlike most coreboot documentation found on the web,
nothing in it should yet be obsolete.
