As i mentioned in a previous thread, most of my troubles can
be attributed to SCSI bus problems, not any fault of IRIX. 
It's just when you have the complexity of the IRIX install
procedure to deal with and then having to restart that
procedure so many times due to testing out various SCSI
configs..... it starts to suck very quickly.

That being said, with the arrival of my "IRIX pre installed"
Octane, my efforts to get 6.5.9 crammed onto an Indy have
*significantly* lessened.  I'm sure i'll come back to it one
day, just for the hell of it, but i don't anticipate that to
be any day soon.

Thanks for the info though,
