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 :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs login
(Only needed the first time you use anonymous CVS, the password
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co <repository>
where you insert linux, libc, gdb or faq for <repository>.
The other important CVS archive of the Linux community is
vger.rutgers.edu 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
http://cvs.on.openprojects.net/. The modules which are of
interest are "linux", "modutils", "pciutils", "netutils".

I wouldn't rush yet for R000 based DEC's as I couldn't produce a
working kernel like Harald described.
