Altix 350 network install?

Unread postby Raion-Fox » Tue Mar 10, 2015 2:11 pm

I can't find any express documentation for this, but I have a copy of SLES 11 for IA-64 here, I need to install this onto my Altix 350. As I don't have an external DVD handy, I'll need to do a network install. The SGI documentation refers to dead links for SUSE, and since I don't run Linux on any computers at the moment, it doesn't even remotely apply, even if I was able to view the content.

So here's what I have to work with: DVDs of SLES 11, and a bunch of FreeBSD, AIX, HP-UX, NetBSD and IRIX boxes. What is a procedure I can use, using the stuff I have here?
