A fourth means is to change the nvram to boot the file you want.
Leave /unix there,and call your linux kernel something like /linux2.2.0
and change the "kernname" nvram.
This should work on the IRIX efs/xfs filesystem on the IRIX
partition. Then you can create a script that resets the NVRAM
variable before reboot.
All we would need to make back and forth boots of IRIX/LINUX
is an "nvram" tool that runs under LInux. (Which would be handy
for other porposes as well.
