Thanks to Henning for showing me where to get the big-endian compiled
packages and it works.   Now, I need big-endian compiled "ash".
Is anybody know where I can get it?

Thanks,

Lisa

For big endian you need big endian complied packages, you can retrieve the
debian base2_2.2.tgz
under ftp.uni-mainz.de/pub/Linux/debian-local/mips, which should work fine
as nfsroot. I have some
problems with open a console beacause on Indigo2 you only have output on
the serial console.
