You are probably referring to the MIPS SEAD board, I have made a port for that 
board
now.
It runs with a small ramdisk, which basically only consist of a stand-alone 
shell
and a few simple commands like ls, etc...
So you can't do much with it, but you can make you own ramdisk, and just merge 
it in
with the kernel.
I will try to put an image on our FTP site
(ftp://ftp.mips.com/pub/linux/mips/kernel/2.4/images/) tomorrow.
