	The sgimips sysinst doesn't install the NetBSD bootloader/boot blocks
	into the volume header of the disk.  In the current state of things,
	neither the sgivol (sys/arch/sgimips/stand/sgivol) tool not the MI
	install boot are adequate for the purpose -- sgivol because it's
	interactive and asks for stuff like confirmation, and the MI
	installboot because there's no sgimips backend for it.

	Install sgimips snapshot; not no bootblocks are installed on the

	None provided.
