I'm quite newbie on SGI/Linux, even if i know Linux and Unix. I'm
trying to boot with HardHat 5.1 (Manhattan) on an Indy (see below)
via a i686/Linux and here is what happens:

>> boot -f bootp()
Setting $netaddr to (for server
Obtaining vmlinux from

Cannot reload bootp()
Illegal f_magik number 0x7f45, expected MIPSELMAGIC or MIPSEBMAGIC
Unable to load bootp() execute format error

Did anyone ever seen this message, and what is the solution, if there
is one ?

Thanks for your help

PS: Here is the description of the Indy i want to boot Linux:
        IP22 100MHz R4000 with FPU
        Memory size 48 Mb
