Re: no init found (IP27)

Thank you very much. I have never seen this in other servers than purchased from sgi, so I thought it is sthg special. I'll look after the adapters you suggested.

Well, those "unnormal" disks are standard SCA disks which are found in
many servers (they are e.g. truly hotpluggable). There are probably
adapters for SCA -> LVD+Power.

It is probably question for quite
different list, but if it is not possible, it will be thrown from the very
high rock in my case :-)

Better give it to a hacker interested in SGI hardware nearby. :-)
Or wait a bit until the support in Debian is in place, the SCSI driver
was the last major blocker.
