On my Octane I'm getting the Irix clock error messages on startup:

Feb 28 01:04:11 4A:iris unix: |$(0x32)WARNING: lost battery backup clock
Feb 28 01:04:11 4A:iris unix: |$(0x34)WARNING: preposterous time in file system
Feb 28 01:04:11 4A:iris unix: |$(0x36)WARNING: CHECK AND RESET THE DATE!

I can't seem to find any information on how to replace the batter
through, or what sort of battery it is.  Is it a battery built into a
NVRAM IC like in some Suns?
