As I'm pretty DECstation only minded I make a start with that section
and post it in this group. Think we all prefer hacking. :-) Small
remark: I assume that you're meaning Megabytes instead of millibytes
in section «6.1. Diskspace requirements»? How about the location
of the kernelsource, for DECstations at least I'm using the source
from http://decstation.unix-ag.org/, how is that related to other
architectures? I guess locations is something that has to be worked out.

A MIPS-hardware-howto and a MIPS-software-howto? Why not.
Thanks for this HOWTO!
