So, upon further review, the crisping components I smelled were on one of
the node boards, who's now-dead condition was causing the "PS FAIL"
messages. I found this out when I moved a board to the other module and the
error followed it...

So, I now have functional an O2K Rack with three 2x195Mhz node boards in the
lower module, and one 2x250Mhz node board in the upper module with 4GB of
RAM, total. There's a boatload of XIO diff SCSI cards and a 4x100 ethernet
card as well.

IRIX 6.5.12 is installed as of today thanks to a lot of help from fellow
listers, with an update to 6.5.22 to come.

So now, the fun is to figure out just how different IRIX is from Solaris :-)
and get some basic tools like ssh, etc. installed and go from there.

Thanks to all out there for their help and advice in getting this thing
