look at ftp.linux.sgi.com in /pub/test. There is a newer little endian
root filesystem (root-le-0.02.tar.gz, if memory serves right). It's based
on glibc-2.0.6 and should work for you. I've stripped down this rootfs
down to make it smaller, so you have to install some of the little RPMS,
before it gets usefull.
See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
