Dan, I have a NeTpower Fastseries MP (single processor, R4400) and am fairly 
new to Linux as well. I have tried the Hardhat 5.1 image with no luck. I am not 
a kernel hacker and don't have a lot of time to work on this but am interested 
to hear what you find. In addition, I might suggest confirming the Endian byte 
order this box uses before investing too heavily in dead brain cells.

I have a dual pro R4400 box made by NeTpower, that I would like to run linux
on.  I have not had a chance to play with it yet, but I will most likely
need some assistance.  I am fairly new to theunix world, and even newer to
linux.  However I would be happy to provide any help I can....

I am downloading  the boot disk stuff and hope to try it soon.  
Any tips to make this run smoothly would be appreciated.
