Colin, I don't know if the NEC machines have been tried with Linux/MIPS
yet. They are ARC systems, so it shouldn't be to difficult to get it to
work--most of the currently working machines are ARC. To be sure,
however, only one processor will work at this point.
Try looking at http://www.fnet.fr/linux-mips/ and go from there. FNet has
the latest version of everything related to the project.
Unfortunately, while it is possible at this time to cross-compile a
Linux/MIPS kernel and get it to boot from the supported platforms, it is
impossible to compose a functioning system from the binaries on FNet
because the root filesystem is way out of date. Wait for Ralf to release
a new set of libraries and maybe a new root filesystem image.
