I'd say you've tried cvs kernel at the times when support for R4400

http://www.linux-mips.org/~ladis/vmlinux.gz (gunzip it :)), as you can
see from dmesg at the end of this mail CPU used in your machine is the
same. If kernel I provided doesn't boot for you I'd like to ask you for
help with debugging (kernel was build from cvs updated at 8:30 CEST)
Wow, this booted. Several people I talked to thought it was originally
a serial console issue. Judging by the several times I've chosen to
build a kernel, it seems R4400 cache gets broken quite often. I'll run
a cvs sync now and try to build my own kernel, since this appears to be
built from recent code. Your kernel lacked a few things gentoo requires
to boot, but it at least proves I'm not going insane over here.
This is known bug, but unfortunately I have not enough RAM to meet it...
A known bug? Interesting. I mentioned it many moons ago in #mipslinux,
and Ralf seemed curious about it, but he said he looked in the kernel
where the memory was detected and said he didn't see anything wrong
there. Anything I can do to help look into this bug and possibly fix?

it can't work ;)
It worked fine for me with printing :)

Mind you, that's an ISA Parallel Port card I dropped in. I noticed the
SGI's parallel port never worked, so I dug up a spare and tried it.
