It is publicly available, try googling "82815 PRM" or "Intel 815
programmers reference manual"

Watch your tongue, there is a huge difference "open documents" and public
documents. The "coreboot site maintainers" which includes many people with
wiki access, don't have the time to run around collecting 50 million
documents floating around the web, especially chipsets that are not even
supported by coreboot yet. Google is your friend.

FYI: You refer to the i815E Northbridge and link to the i82801BA ICH2
southbridge... two completely different things... are you sure you know
what your doing???
