For Debian/mips (big-endian) the main targets are SGI Indy and Indigo2,
for Debian/mipsel (little-endian) it is the DECstation 5000 series. 
The Debian installer ("boot-floppies") currently only supports the 
aforementioned SGI and DEC systems, but of course you can run Debian
also on other Linux/MIPS-supported machines which are not supported 
by the Debian installer - you just have to perform the base installation 
"by hand", for example by putting the harddisk into another computer 
and installing the Debian base from there. 
Machines that are in use with Debian but for which we currently do 
not have installer support include for example the Lasat Masquerade
Pro and some MIPS-based Cobalt systems (Cube/Raq).

That is the goal we try to achieve.
