Thank you, this helps a lot. It boots but it can't find the kernel
module for the network adapter. I am surprised because if this is for
loongson there is only one choice here, and it is not on the list.

Before I go further, is there a bootable rescue image I could load
from USB? I would like to be able to fdisk and do other rescue tasks.
I was hoping to be able to do this from the installer but selecting
the shell I didn't find fdisk. Anyway this is encouraging. Thank you.
