Here is an update on this system. First off sorry about the long
delay in posting an update. I tried the serial cable suggestions and
I was able to determine from that the system does work. It has the
ill fated TOD error but I searched the web and found two or three
links that deal with this issue so all I need to do now is buy a new
battery and have one of the guys at work who knows how to solder in
the new one. I will most likely make it easier to change out by
placing it somewhere it can be accessed easier, than it current
I did buy the correct video 13W3 connector for this unit from
www.deepspacecables.com and it works great it gave me a better view of
the TOD error. I would suggest using eBay to buy from them as it is a
few buck cheaper than their web site. But that is just me.
Anybody know where I can find a bootable cd-rom drive cheap for this
unit? As I might need to re-install Irix on it. Also know where I
can get Irix 6.5?
Thanks for everyone's help with my initial issue. I'll post more as I
get this unit up and running.
