Octane ESI / R12000 300Mhz / 512MB / CAD-Duo

Hello folks. Been a very long time since I've been anywhere near SGI hardware but I recently found a nice, tidy Octane setup so decided to grab and have a play. Here she is :

It arrived with a 36GB Barracuda in an external SCSI enclosure (, and has a bunch of DALiM software on it (LiTHO et al) .. along with what looks like the sprawling remnants of a graphic design company - 8GB of DTP files for clients like AVON and the RSPB. Most bizarre.

The installed-software list is over here for the interested: - the Barracuda seemed to house a mirror of the install CDs + a large set of DALiM install packages.

Here's the pile of stats! + a couple of Q's for the more enlightened...

- the serial for the IP30, 030-1467-001, suggests it is a later revision but it has a black handle. Is that normal?
- XTALKPCI 030-0952-005 - is that an SGI PCI cage? if so, that is what the "CAD-Duo" card honking out the back ( is plugged into, right?

PCI Card Cage hanging out the back (nickname shoebox) with a IOC3 or CADduo card. Since you have only a single graphics board I imagine it was added to provide a second ethernet port.
