I want to re-install the system software for this old Indy I picked up. It has a minimal Irix 6.5 installation on it but I want to try writting some software on it and stuff like that.
I have an external SCSI cd-rom that I'm hooking into the back of the INDY and it came with one of those big monitors that only work with it.
Ok, it says that in order to install Irix on this machine I have to press escape or something while it's booting...I'm sure that would work fine except shows up on the monitor until it wants me to login!
I really don't know where to change this setting...and the devices are so oddly named that I don't even know if I'd be able to choose the correct device to install from (my external CD...which I don't even know how to access). Irix is so different from other *ix's. I normally use FreeBSD so when I got it I figured it couldn't be THAT different...but it really is.
If someone could give me a little helping hand I'd totally appreciate it.
