Reverse-engineering it would probably be harder than disassembling the
bootstrap to outline the hardware, unless you don't mind pulling the 
PALs out of the board and have the tools to reverse-engineer them.

Either way, you're stuck with a small 68000 box with a few cranky UARTs
and an ethernet.  Fun toy, but not terribly useful in itself.
