Since two years I am testing the Debian mips port on an SGI O2. I am not a kernel developer but I have enough spare time to test new software amd write reports.
I wonder if there is any testing needs on the lenny d-i on such architecture.
I am unsure about the overall support for this architecture. Do I remember wronlgy or is sparc currently unsupported?

I suppose 3310 is an LVD based storage, since SF280R only have LVD connector on the rear side, while T3 need a FC connection that is provided by a PCI card. I have to check what card is plugged into the machine.
