On SGI Indys you can append boot parameters to the `bootp():' command
in the command monitor.  Full information on boot parameters can be
found in the Linux BootPrompt HOWTO
(http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/BootPrompt-HOWTO.html); this section
contains only a sketch of the most salient parameters.

This is a bit terse - We should at least describe how to address
the patch and bootimage filename ...


"Following the `bootp():' command you can give the path and name
of the file to boot if you did not give an explicit name via your
bootp/dhcp server - Example: `bootp():/boot/tftpboot.img'"
