The EISA bus adapter is an E100 Fast Ethernet card. I actually have Phobos G160 sitting on my desk, but it's still in the original box (even shrink wrapped!) so I'm a little reluctant to install it.
The Indigo2 is connected to a 17 inch Samsung SyncMaster 760V LCD through a cheap 13W3<->VGA adapter.
The box came with IRIX 6.5 pre-installed when I bought it about 8 or 9 years ago. I recently downloaded and installed the 6.5.22 patchset. I should probably do a full re-install (once I get my hands on IRIX media) since I almost certainly messed up the installation in the early days before I knew much about IRIX. (I'm a Linux guy, primarily. But ever since using Solaris 2.x in the early- to mid-1990s, I've had an interest in anything Unix-y.)
I know the system desperately needs more RAM, but it's getting hard to find (and consequently rather expensive). I almost purchased an Octane recently, and have a few Octane accessories already sitting on my desk waiting for a home. So I'm not sure if I'll upgrade the RAM or not. I've heard older versions of IRIX run better with 64MB, so I may downgrade the OS instead.
I'll try to get some pictures to post.
