As I understand it, when the NVRAM battery dies on older Suns, like the
IPX/LX/Classic/etc., you have three choices:
replace the NVRAM
open the NVRAM and hack in a new battery
use a start-up script that sets up the PROM, then reboots
... but what about older SGIs, like my Indigo2s, Indys and Challenge L?
Same deal? Will they boot with a dead NVRAM battery?
