Thanks for all replies.

I have readed wiki pages at http://www.linux-mips.org. For now i know what type 
of RM300C i have:
big endian RM300C-80 with R10000 and SNI Monitor.

AFAIK, i have next options to start Linux on that computer:
1.\ to use network boot
2.\ to create boot CD with Disk Volume Header
3.\ to change bootloader to ARC and to use Debian MIPS boot CD.
I can't use option 3 because we have purchased RM300C as used hardware w/o any 
documentation and licensies (and w/o SCSI discs).
Will kernels placed at http://silicon-verl.de/home/flo/projects/snirm/kernel/ 
work with big endian R10000?
Can i create test version of boot CD with Disk Volume Header and Linux kernel 
only?
