MIPS install of Woody

Hello All,
	Firstly I'd like to appologize for the cross-post.  I wasn't sure which
list is better set to handle this.

I'm trying to install woody on a mips box SGI-indy.

I've gotten the machine to boot (via tftp and bootp) and I get to the point 
in the install where the machine grabs the packages from the 'Net.

My problem is that exim is listed as a package to grab BUT accrding to

there is on exim package:
<== Packages.gz ==>
Package: exdbm
Priority: optional
Section: libs
Installed-Size: 200
Maintainer: Stephen M Moraco <stephen@debian.org>
Architecture: mips
Version: 1.0b2-9
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-2)
Filename: pool/main/e/exdbm/exdbm_1.0b2-9_mips.deb
Size: 34982
MD5sum: f543f6dc66f321d554f10fdcd620154f
Description: eXode database manager

Package: exim-doc

<== end: Packages.gz ==>

Consequently the install fails to download exim and stops.

There is an exim package in pool/e/exim/.... for mips which just plain
confuses me.

Basically I'm was wondering what caused this problem (how is exim
not in Packages.gz), and what the best to to proceede from here is?

Yours Tony.
