Turns out this was a problem with the CD-ROM after all. I pulled a Philips 
CDRW drive out of another machine and installed it internally and all is 
working now :-)

Hi guys, I'm trying to install 0.9.3 on a 715/100XC and have run into a

'sea scsi' shows I have:

scsi.6.0	SEAGATE ST32151N
scsi.2.0	TOSHIBA CD-ROM XM-3701TA

'sea ipl' shows the CD-ROM

So I issue 'boot scsi.2.0 ipl' and the get the following:

Attempting to boot.
Loading Initial Program Loader
ERROR: Cannot load IPL, error detected
Boot process failed. press <ESCAPE> to Continue

md5sums on the iso image check out and I've burned a couple of cd's just in
case the first was dodgy.
The Toshiba CD-ROM is known to work and boots my SGI Indy just fine.

This machine has BootRom Version 1.1, could this be causing a problem?

Where do I go from here?

Thanks for any help,
