Well, I too have a Magnum R3x30 (3230)... But I don't have the time to hack
a bootloader... And haven't been able to convince SGI to send me docs on how 
to... I guess it's when they see my E-mail address that they start frowning :)

Anyways, since this machine is not ARC compliant, it's not easy to set
MILO to detect everything in the machine... And since it won't boot from
the floppy drive (it boots from tape or disk), that's yet another challenge,
as to what is the format of the bootstrap on the tape!

Gilles.
