Per Folgestrom has ported NetBSD to the Acer PICA, and NetBSD also 
currently has a port to the DECstation platforms.  Both are MIPS-cpu 
based systems.

It might not be that hard to get NetBSD working on the system you 
mention, though not having much first-hand knowledge of it, I couldn't 
say for sure ... Per and Jonathan (the NetBSD/pmax guy) would be more 
authoritative in this respect :-)
