Sure :-)  I wasn't a kernel hacker too before I simply couldn't resist
to work on it...

OK. I'll subscribe you. The list's address is <>.
What you can and should to then is to ask Stoned Elipot 
<> if and how you can help him with
the Olivetti support. Also, if there are any questions, please
feel free to post on the list.

Ah, guess you got it from Applied Personal Computing ?

Well, we have crosscompiler patches and binaries available. It
shouldn't be a problem to make mipsel-linux-gcc running on a
NetBSD box.

Well, it would be useful, of course. But I don't mind if you
continue to run NetBSD. No religions on this list :-)

Well... Welcome to Linux/MIPS! Have fun!
