    I have just the full 17cd set of Irix 6.5.21 which is now 6 months
    old. This should be all that is necessary to do clean disk installs on
    Octane, O2, I2 and Indy, no?

    Specifically how do I copy the cd set to hard drive so inst can look
    to this directory for everything it needs. And I won't have to feed it
    cd after cd for x hours.....

    I will use at least an 18gb harddrive on disk 2 so there will be
    plenty of room for the whole set.

    Is there any compelling reason to also include in the directory such
    Irix updates/overlays issued since 8-03 and, if so, what form should
    these files take in the dir.

    I've tried to google this topic but only found a couple other oblique
    references such as the one quoted above.

    TIA,
