This sounds like an awesome opportunity! =) 

Please tell me more aobut what kind of logistical arrangments would be

I'm a DOS user who *HATES* all other OSes despite the rapidly diminishing
usability of my current system. I have a sound understanding of assembly
language programming and operating system design. I would love to assist in
any way possible. =) I would like to try to extend the OpenBoot standard (used
by GRUB) to include a generic driver system. My intrest in this stems from the
fact that I am trying to develop my own OS which will have its own set of
bootup specifications.

As a general rule you should not put user level software such as operating
systems in firmware, rather it should be on a random access disk on chip
solution as could be designed into the motherboard or installed via a PCI
card... (this is an ancient tenant).

The militia whose regulation was referred to by the second ammendment is
the one run by the pentagon.
