Good to know.  I am expecting a couple of Indy's to
come in soon.  I've never worked on any type of SGI
before so i expect to need a decent amount of help.
 I'll try not to flood the list with all my questions
in one day.

First off, i bought a copy of IRIX 5.3 (for 175mhz with
2 megs of cache).  Everything i have read so far states
that this particular version is made for certain
Indigo2s and will not work with an Indy.  The tech
employed by the company who sold it to me said that it
will.  Anyone have any input here?

Anyone know where i can get IRIX 6.5 for less than $200
bucks (current ebay price).  Definitely less than the
$600 SGI wants.  Would be nice if they were more like
Sun in that respect.
