Legit copies I think ebay is going to be your only option, although a
company specializing in old workstations might have a copy laying
around somewhere.  I'm not sure if Irix is automatically licensed to
the machine, such as older versions of AIX were; if so, you can
probably find a backup image on a multitude of Hotline servers.  Try
