          For those who always want to stay on the bleeding edge and want
          to avoid having to download patch files or full tarballs we
          also have an anonymous CVS server. Using CVS you can checkout
          the Linux/MIPS source tree with the following commands:
   cvs -d login

          (Only needed the first time you use anonymous CVS, the password
          is "cvs")
   cvs -d co <repository>

          where you insert linux, libc, gdb or faq for <repository>.
          The other important CVS archive of the Linux community is
 where a lot of code is being collected before
          being sent to Linus for distribution. Although vger itself no
          longer offers anonymous access, there are mirror sites which do
          provide anonymous access. For details how to access them see
 The modules which are of
          interest are "linux", "modutils", "pciutils", "netutils".

I wouldn't rush yet for R[23]000 based DEC's as I couldn't produce a
working kernel like Harald described.
