:You need to make a new IRIX boot disk (by using some other SGI
:computer):
:
:- boot up a system to single user mode
:
:- do fx to partition the second disk as a root disk
:
:- make file system on the second disk and mount the file system
:
:- copy sash to the new disk
:
:# fx "dksc(0,2)"
:# mkfs /dev/rdsk/dks0d2s0
:# mount /dev/dsk/dks0d2s0 /mnt
:# /sbin/dvhtool -v g sash sash; /sbin/dvhtool -v c sash sash /dev/rdsk/dks0d2vh
:# rm sash
:
:The problem obviously is that Linux erased your IRIX boot record and
:partitions.
