I am trying to install IRIX 3.3 on a PI 4D35. I have distribution tapes
and a 4D35 support tape as distcp(1M) images on disk. I created tapes
from this images with distcp(1M) on IRIX 4.0.5. I can boot the
standalone tools from the 4D35 support tape. But I can't install
anything. I get allways:
Reading product descriptor from <where ever>:
Can't read product descriptor.

<where ever> is the tape device or the disk directory. When I had
problems with the tapes I mounted the IRIX 4.0.5 disk by hand and
pointed the install system to it with the "from" command. Same result:
"Can't read product descriptor."

Whats wrong here?
