One caution - it's worth getting into the installed system at least to
check for software licenses. Look for the usual FlexLM license.dat file
at least, there might be other things lurking. IRIX includes a fairly
easy-to-use GUI backup tool (using cpio, I think) if you have a
compatible tape drive handy.
I'll also second that recommendation -- lots of useful information and
discussions on the nekochan.net wiki and forums for any SGI owner.
Good news, and good luck!
