There's no more to say.. Noone has implemented coreboot for the
board, and the significant components on the board are not otherwise
supported by coreboot.

The components are very old and there exists no public documentation
for them, as is needed for coreboot development. A skilled coreboot
developer could possibly create support for the chipset and then for
your board in 6-12 months full time, given appropriate documentation.

I'm happy that you are interested in coreboot! But coreboot success
very much depends on choosing hardware according to what is already
supported by coreboot, not the other way around. The exception to
this is when you are an experienced PC firmware developer or
equivalent, and thus can write the needed code yourself.
