[rescue] IRIX 6.5 on an Indy

I actually slapped 6.5.9f on it last night and i was very surprised by 
the speed.  It actually has 160 megs, i was thinking it was 128 but was 
mistaken.  I have an additional 128 here so i'll bump it up to 256 later.

This was also the first time i've gotten IRIX to install correctly 
(mistakes and ignorance on my part the first few times it tried.)  Like 
most things it's not such a bad install if you actually read the docs 
and take your time :)
