Ok, I found a 4.5MB boot.img file which is supposed to be the netboot debian
installer for r3k-kn03 mipsel. mopd doesn't seem to like it's a.out-ness.
mopchk gives (I named it DEBIAN.SYS for the purpose of mop booting):

Checking: DEBIAN.SYS
Some failure in GetAOutFileInfo

Does mopd work with a.out files? I read somewhere it doesn't. Is this the
install image you speak of? There doesn't seem to be a cd-rom version. I
really have difficulties with Debian's site. Any help you guys could offer
me would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Collin
