Linux on the Origin 2000

My research centre has been donated a beautiful SGI Origin 2000 server (512
MB RAM, 2x180 MHz R10000 CPU) machine... we got IRIX up on it, but I'm quite
keen to try running Linux on it as well. I note in the linux-mips HOWTO
there is a mention that as of last year the kernel boots, and code to
support this machine is now in CVS, but it all sounds rather experimental.

Can anyone tell me what the status of Origin 2000 support is, and is it
worth trying to install? I'd be quite keen to help in testing Linux on this
machine (if I can get Debian up and running on it I will be very very happy
indeed :)
