Linux/Mips installation (fwd)


I'm new to this list, so please forgive me if this has already been
addressed earlier...

I'm trying to install SGI/Linux onto an Indy workstation using the
instructions found at http://www.linux.sgi.com/mips/manhattan.  I've got
the machine so that it net boots the kernel and starts the installation
program.  However, after I select the hard drive I want to install to, I
get the following error:

                                         Oops: 0000

you may safely reboot your system

This happens directly after I select my target hard drive from the hard
drive list.  It doesn't seem to matter whether or not I try to partition
it with the Edit option on the menu.

Do you have any ideas as to what may be wrong?  I'm using the
hardhat-sgi-5.1.tar.gz file from
