Help getting an Octane running.

I now have access to an SGI Octane and would like to get Debian running on it.

I followed the Netboot instruction for the Indy and used the Gentoo
image from here:

It boots up perfectly. No issues.

Can someone point me in the right direction for getting from here
(busybox shell) to getting the Debian installer going?

Is there a Debian tftpboot.img I should/could be using?

Once I've got this going, I'll write up a how-to. There doesn't seem
to be one right now!

Here's some system info:

System: IP30
Processor: 300 Mhz R12000, with FPU
Primary I-cache size: 32 Kbytes
Primary D-cache size: 32 Kbytes
Secondary cache size: 2 Mbytes
Memory size: 1280 Mbytes
Network: ef0 ethernet (100/10 base-T)
SCSI Disk: scsi(0)disk(1)
SCSI Disk: scsi(0)disk(3)
SCSI CDROM: scsi(1)disk(5)
Audio: RAD Audio Processor
Graphics: ESI

Thanks for your help.
