  Just to inform you that I have just added a mirror of SGIlinux
at ftp://rufus.w3.org/linux/SGILinux/redhat-5.0/ and that the
packages are now indexed in the RPM database at

  http://rufus.w3.org/linux/RPM/SGIlinux/5.0/

 hope it may prove useful,

 Daniel

P.S. 
  I got some real problems with 5 packages in the noarch directory,
  it seems that their content is somewhat garbled, the RPM (4.12)
  library cannot properly read the header, at least on an Intel
  platform:
----------
~/rpm2html -> ./rpm2html config.sgi 
Scanning directory /linux/SGILinux/redhat-5.0/RPMS for RPMs
