Hi,
with the following two patches (first against dvhtool, second against
current cvs kernel) it's possible to boot the Indy from a local harddisk
without the need of IRIX to install it in the volume header. Set 
setenv OSLoader linux 
and 
setenv OSLoadPartition /dev/sd(whatever)
in the boot-prom and do a: 
dvhtool -d /dev/sda(whatever) --unix-to-vh (your_favorite_ecoff_kernel) linux
Regards,
 -- Guido

P.S.: ...and no, I don't know if it will work, so better backup
your volumheader first.
