> I've been told that IRIX 6.5.x will work with this machine - is this true?

Not with any semblance of usability.... I'd go with 5.3 or maybe 6.2 if you
are feeling ambitious.

Seriously try to get a R4400 150mhz board for this, they go for like $5,
then it could run 6.5 pretty okay.  I used to use one as my main workstation
in this configuration.

Sorry I can't be of more help.  I am glad to see more of these being used.
(and not made into 31337 PC cases, ugh)
