 I now have both SGILinux-5.0 and SGILinux-5.1 archived on
and my feeling is that the 5.0 packages don't need anymore public exposure
(plus there are a couple of broken RPM in the 5.0 distrib).
 So I'm thinking about removing the 5.0 distrib from the mirrors, HTML output
and rpmfind database. 
 Opinions ?
 Also I may be able to grab and reinstall an old Indy at the end of the month,
but it has only a 1 Gig internal HD with a single IRIX partition, I'm not sure
I will be able to grab an external drive. In such a situation is it possible
to install SGILinux ? My limited understanding of the situation is that the
ROM loader only understand Irix partition format and then to load the kernel
one need to keep it in such a partition, in that case it seems I will have
a hard time without using a second drive for Linux install, right ?
