Question Open Firmware code for booting OS from SATA : sample code available somewhere ?

I am learning and developing Open Firmware code to
make a SATA drive on the machine bootable.

The firmware has to be in expansion ROM on the controller card
(based on Silicon Image 3512) for the SATA drive.
(the card will be on PCI, of course).

Since I am so new to this sphere, I am seeking some pointers/advice from you:
Is there a library of packages/methods available somewhere on net which may come close
to implementing the above ? By studying the preexisting sample code and making required modifications,
may be, I can cut down the learning/development time.

(I have downloaded general literature on IEEE 1275 and FORTH from net).

Any other suggestions will be most welcome.

Thanks !
