Yes, I saw that in the kernel docs but I tried it anyway since that's the 
version used in the FAQ.  I ended up getting another error though, and 
upgrading to gcc 2.95.3 (couldn't find .4) didn't help:

/usr/mips-linux/bin/as: unrecognized option `-mcpu=r3000'

I saw that this option was removed a while back, so I guess downgrading the 
binutils is the only way to go (or upgrading gcc, but I got a ton of errors 
compiling 3.3.2 so I guess that doesn't work...)

I'll try an older version of the binutils and see if that fixes it.  Thanks 
for your help!
