I think a few of you might be interested http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-905616.html

I'm cb88 in that thread. I can put up a link from my home server ( be kind its a transmeta running Gentoo i586 :D ) as well as linmag7 has the images on his home ftp server which you get details via PM.

There are .iso and stage3 images I think linmag7 is working on them actively as well too which is quite cool. I haven't had a chance to test the images yet myself but since no one else has noticed them on the Gentoo forum I thought I would point them out as it is about the only recent Linux distro you can run on 32bit Sparc. Apparently the latest kernels run ok on uni-processor and us supposed to work for MP Also you have to use initramfs as the kernels these days are too large to fit in the 3Mb or so limit imposed by silo.

If you want a link just email me or of course PM linmag7 on the Gentoo forum since he will have the latest images for sure maybe someone could mirror them for him?
