sorry, problem is that I _cannot_ install
I want to install NetBSD on an Indigo2. I downloaded an sgimipscd-3.1.iso from
Unfortunaly I was not able to burn this ISO because it is not iso9660.
k3B and Nero didn't want to burn it.
Do you know how to burn it? Shall I do it with cdrecord (with what
cdrecord burns this image, but I am not able to read it afterwards and Indigo2 does not want to boot from this image.
Using Gentoo Live Image for SGI I did not have this problems and this image starts to boot till kernel panic (probably due to the RC status of Gentoo).
Burning sgi image from OpenBSD and from Debian Linux I've the same problems like burning NetBSD Image.
I am not able to use tftp for install because the Net Admin of our institut did not install a dhcp server.
