OK, thanks for that one, I've now built CoreBoot and flashed it onto my
MSI 6119 motherboard. Using serial console I can see the following

core-boot-4.0-r5601 Tue Jun 1 14:41:35 BST 2010 starting...
SMBus controller enabled

I have the SeaBIOS built as a payload. The strange thing is that there
seems to be no video. I'll try swapping graphic cards out and see if I
can get video. 

Can the serial console be used as a way to reload firmware if necessary?

One very high maintenance cat living here.
