OK, that's corny, but it really _is_ what I said!

Anyways.  I get:

"Found a PMAX/MIPS compatible boot PROM!"

then

"Linux/MIPS DECStation Boot"
"Copyright (C) Paul M. Antoine 1995, 1996, 1997 and other, 1994, 1995, 1996, 
1997"

"Linux version 2.1.14 (paul@slither) (gcc version 2.6.3) #277 Sun May 11 
23:06:47"

and then it crashes.

BUT ... this is obviously _great_ progress, from where I stand!

Paul, did you say you'd have a source tree available soon?  I think it's time
for me to put that MIPS book to work!

Thanks much Paul ... I know it's just a first step, but I can see some hope
for this beast now!  If you're ever in this part of the US (Upstate NY) dinner
and drinks are on me!

                Stu
