Sure, just hook-up a terminal to the serial port, link /dev/console to
/dev/ttyS1 on your nfs-root, and don't forget to change
setup-1.9.1-2.noarch.rpm to add some securetty's so that
you can log in over the network as root. (Hardhat doesn't add a normal user at
installation, a missing future, i think).

Well, no hinv since i'm not running irix on the machine anymore (i boot  it
over the network), but here's the dmesg from within linux.This is a
self-compiled kernel, using the cvs tree from linus.linux, but the kernel
included with the hardhat package installs just as good.
If you wish, i can send you the rebuild setup...noarch.rpm to put on the
webpage for other people who wish to try linux on a S.


If someone is seriously interested in do some other development on this
machine, i'm more then willing to give away a shell account for this person.
