There are no free tools for writing EFS, only a kernel fs filter for reading
a EFS filesystem. (I've had no luck getting it to read EFS filesystems on
a CD though. The mount process simply hangs and I have to reboot to use
the drive again. I have a Plextor 40max which supposedly supports the 512
byte blocks on SGI discs.)
The other problem you have is that the SGI firmware will only boot 512 bytes/sector
CDs. I'm not sure how you'd go about creating such a disc on a conventional
PC burner. I've heard of people copying their IRIX discs, but I don't know
if it was done on a PC or with SGI equipment.
