No the project is not about making money. If you pay some one to help 
you learn it, it would be a private deal between you and that person, 
not you and "coreboot".

I don't even know how to start a hallo world program in C, still I was 
able to port 2 boards, improve memory initilization for the 440BX 
chipset. My first mail to this list was to aske if my board was 
supported, my secound was sending the patch for the 440BX chip. So all 
the needed info to get started is clearly out there, you just have to 
want to read and understand it. The information that you will find on 
the wiki is probably more complete and more indebted then what you will 
get by asking some one as it has been thought threw a couple of times.

You won't really be learning that much about the PC BIOS from Coreboot, 
so if that is your goal you should probably look in to SeaBIOS or send 
emails to eurosupport at phoenix.com
