What I did was update to the latest firmware that I downloaded from the
SGI site (if I did not do this, win2k
would bitch about the firmware actually). Then I booted of my Win2k SP4
disk and installed it straight forward.
No options I had to set or nothing. Also I installed all the drivers
from the SGI website and put in a 3rd party
firewire card and was good to go. I did not bother getting the onboard
FW to work as it did seem a bit buggy
for something that will transfer lots of data so I just did stick with a
FW card what cost me like $20.
