Yep !

I'm a student at The University of NSW, Australia and over this summer
(yes it's summer now ;) I'll be undertaking to port Linux to a specialised
board developed here, which uses a R4{6,7}00 chip.

As a warmup exercise, as I've been given access to an Indy and brought in
my home Linux x86 box as a bootserver, I'll try and install SGI/Linux. The
only prob is that I've never used/played with an SGI before and so would
appreciate a slightly more comprehensive howto then the FAQ. 

I've been lurking in the background the last few days and this seems like
an appropriate time to say "Hi".

Any hints or tips anyone could send me would be much appreciated.

Thanks
