Great, but I still can't get a running kernel from cvs mips-linux for
a DB1550 board. Is it perhaps the toolchain? I'm using gcc-3.4.1 perhaps
that is too recent. 

Tried mipsel last night and got the same result as big end so I suspect
it may be my compiler/binutils combination. Is there are recommended
toolchain for mips. Should I go build gcc-2.95 and binutils 2.12 ?
