I have an Indy R5000, so says the case anyway.  I was able to setup
bootp/tftp/nfs.  I can mount the nfs dir from within IRIX.  I tried
booting from the nfs partition using bootp, and during the boot
message it seems to identify the machine and hardware ok.  Then I get
the "unable to open initial console" message( read: hang ).

I'm sure you have seen this before.  Have I buggered the unpacking
of HardHat?

TIA
