Like Wolfgang Denk mentioned, this can be a very long way. And you
probably shouldn't start with U-Boot 1.0.0 but with the current
GIT head version.

It seems that U-Boot could also be a replacement for the standard BIOS
on PC motherboards instead of just being another boot manager. But I
doubt that the chipset and motherboard manufacturers will supply
enough information about power-on initialisation, especially for an
open-source project.
