That is no problem for SGI hardware as Linux/MIPS currently does not 
support R3000 SGI systems (big endian, "mips") anyway, but for
the little endian systems ("mipsel") there are lots of R3000 based 
machines. In particular most of the DECstations are R3000-based, 
and this is one of the major targets for Debian on mipsel.
