Those files weren't on the CD's unfortunately. CD's only had NT351 drivers.

I'm pretty sure I have the PROM1_005.exe and sgi_ssk.exe in my archives somewhere. Will try and dig them out, the other two don't look familiar though :(.

I have just about everything published on SGI's supportfolio/ftp for the SGI VW320 back in the day, including all the above.
If you haven't already sorted it out with someone else contact me and I can send them to you.

A collection of assorted VW320/540 files. Would it be possible to upload them somewhere on Nekochan?

Wow, thanks for this. I just got a VW320 yesterday, with Win2k preinstalled. It has all the CDs, but they are for NT4. I was afraid to wipe the system without win2k drivers.

The 320 Is a really cool machine!

I got all of my support and software that I needed for my machine from Ian Mapleson. :D

It really deserves more credit than it gets!

I've got Return to Castle Wolfenstein installed on mine and it runs the game rather well!

Not too bad for a machine from 1999!
