Howdy David!
SGI/Linux is the port of Linux to Silicon Graphics hardware. It
currently supports all Indy models (R4400, R4600, or R5000 MIPS(TM)
CPUs, with or without secondary caches). Additional SGI hardware
support is planned but not yet available.

    When confronted by a difficult problem, solve it by reducing 
    it to the question, "How would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
