This article describes the installation and customization of the [[IRIX 6.5.30]] operating system on a [[SGI Fuel]]. None of the tasks are specific to the FUEL or this specific version of the OS, so most of the steps will work for [[IRIX]] 6.5.21 - 6.5.30 and different hardware too. The following steps where recorded during the re-install of my system after the hard disk died.
Well, since we already have an article about the core [[IRIX_Network_Installation_to_a_SGI_Fuel|installation over a network]] and also a complete howto for the manual steps we will skip this part in this tutorial to reduce redundancy.

The "nogfxkbd" option allows the machine to boot without a keyboard or mouse connected. Its not needed on a headless system like [[SGI Origin]] 2xx(x) or 3xx(x). The OSLoadFilename variable is only important if the volume header of your system disk doesn't contain the bootfile=/unix entry.
