You'll also need an IRIX 5.3 Install disk to fx your hard disks.  6.2 
has a bug that won't allow you to do that.  It's pretty simple once you 
have the 5.3... you fx your disk, reboot with 6.2, and the EFS will 
automagically be converted to XFS once you answer the question at boot.

I have a set of 6.2 still I think.  I'll have to dig it out and image 
it.  My Crimson was given a new home... though I haven't heard anything 
about it since... Kevin?..
