I 'played' with linux/MIPS on such a box about two years ago, and I this
- I had an ultrix-disk in the box, booted ultrix and ftp-ed the linux
kernel image onto that disk.
- I went back to the boot-prompt.
- I did a boot of the linux-kernel from that disk.
But, that was pre-Y2K and - as I know ultrix is not Y2K- I am not sure
it would even still boot now ;-).
Cheerio! Kr. Bonne.
