Hehe, shop for a watercooled NIC:

[root@tbird redhat]# du -s RPMS SRPMS
174930  RPMS
207239  SRPMS

Btw, after about a week of destruction testing:

[root@tbird redhat]# uptime
  8:54am  up 16 days,  2:20,  2 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
[root@tbird redhat]#

No scratches, still supershiny ...

It's actually produced as part of the GCC installation procedure.

It's being installed as part of the GCC installation procedure.  Quick
fix: steal the files from a crosscompiler installation, if you have one.
As Tim already said the missing files crtbegin.o, crtbeginS.o, crtend.o
and crtendS.o should be part of gcc-2.7.2-1.mips.rpm; I'll upload a new
package rsn.
