I don't quite follow how the whole mips arch is organized. Is there an
install kernel which works on all mips machines like on i386 where you
get a generic kernel for the installer and you can compile your own
specific kernel afterwards? Or does every model need a specific kernel?
I already saw in the Debian on Indy howto there is a tftpboot.img
available, but that one seems to be specifically for an R4k on an IP22
