two things, i believe should be useful to add to this woody-install:

1- i had some problem with the tftp "port over 32768" issue to make tftpboot.img downloadable to my indy, so had to type this on my linux tftp server:

 echo "2048 32767" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range

2- fdisking my new 2GB scsi disk (the indy came with an unuseful 600MB disk, good only for irix..), i scratch my head against the "SGI disklabel" thing[*].. so remember to use the e(x)pert option in fdisk to find how to create a SGI-compatable partition scheme..



i just put up some notes about my beginnings on the indy here:

[*] coming from just ia32-linux eXPerience, i was used to a PeCee mentality..
