Re-read the HOWTO wehere it tells you how to remount / read-write
Ive gotten this far as well. I then could ifconfig my ethernet interface
and add the necessary routing information to talk to the network, but I
couldn't ever actually get it to talk. I could ping myself but nothing
else. I assumed this was because I didn't have things like inetd, rc
scripts to start things, etc...

My next step was to then pull down all of the mips RPMS to the 1st disk
running linux, and I was going to then try to mount the first disk after
booting Linux off of the second disk - then installing all of the RPM's
- but I haven't gotten there yet.

It would be REALLY nice, if someone could take their installed system,
tar/cpio the whole ball of wax and put it up for download.
