In light of list responses to my netbooting questions, I grabbed the src
on 2/6/01, made tweaks so it would link, built a kernel with serial
console support (and no VT support), ran elf2ecoff, booted with
console=ttyS0, and was able to reach a prompt on my Indy.

Here (I think) are the changes since then...

(grossglockner) ~/zips/crossdev/linux % cvs -d
:pserver:cvs@oss.sgi.com:/cvs history -a -D 2001-02-06 -c
M 02/07 02:43 +0000 ralf 1.3  threads.h  linux/include/linux == <remote>
M 02/08 18:10 +0000 xfs  1.20 todos.html xfs-website         == <remote>
M 02/08 20:52 +0000 xfs  1.21 todos.html xfs-website         == <remote>
M 02/08 20:54 +0000 ralf 1.50 setup.c    linux/arch/mips/kernel == <remote>

BTW, thanks to everyone for their help so far!  Now I'm trying to get a
local user filesystem setup...
