Hmmm, I think Linux developers are the most helpful people in the world :)

Maybe one can arrange to make a University project of it. I'm student of 
computer engineering at Siegen Univ.; I'm currently trying to do
useful for the DECstation port at the moment and am interested in learning
more about your MIPS machine. I assume it's no problem to get all hardware
documentation and maybe some example code for device drivers etc ?

Anyway, I'll talk to our operating systems professor about it. He is
always interested in industry contacts.
