The Indy's are big endian machines.  This means that you won't be able
to use the packages I have provided.  Due to the lack of a proper machine
I can't work on that port, but others are.

Please check out http://www.infodrom.north.de/linx/ , search for mips.
You'll get a bunch of links to read.

Kernels should be found on ftp.linux.sgi.com as well as a hardhat you
could use as start.  If you don't like this you can check out how far
the binary-mips port is and look at ftp://ftp.rfc822.org/pub/local/debian/debian
