Would anyone be interested in attempting to install Debian 
on an SGI Indy here at KSU?  If that makes it run a little 
faster or become useful again, I would like to do this. 
Does Linux run on the SGI O2 or higher machines?  Are the 
applications ported as well?  What kind of Linux 
availability is there for SGI hardware?
