I have a problem with the instalation of Debian in a SGI O2 machine. I have never worked before with a SGI O2, and now I have to investigate about them, and I have to install a new OS to that machines. I want to install Debian from a CDROM (I downloaded the mips netinst iso image and I burned in a CD), but when I try to boot the CD the system can`t load the instalation. I tried the following commands:

> boot -f dksc(0,4,7)stand/fx.ARCS --x
Unable to execute dksc(0,4,7)stand/fx.ARCS: media not loaded
Unable to load dksc(0,4,7)stand/fx.ARCS: no recognizable file system on device.

Cannot load load dksc(0,4,8)r4k-ip22.
Range check failure: text start 0x88802000, size 0x1dc0.

Cannot load dksc(0,4,8).
