I've got my new raid box (promise 15 disk unit x 250GB disks) to put on
my sgi machine running irix.  The plan is to movei it onto the new dual
xeon machine running linux, once that machine is available.

Currently, fx under Irix won't partition it (maybe too big?)

Google and searching sgi based mailing list archives have left me with no
more ideas.

Could someone here point me to an appropriate place to get some help on this?
An SGI savvy person, or an SGI list, or raid list or...

I've split it into two 7 disk raid sets, so approx 1.5 TB each.
fx always errors after I make changes to the disk.  Irix sees it and 
makes /dev/rdsk/dks2d1vh thru dksc2d15vh and dks2s1vol thru dks2d15vol
it does the same for lun1 as well, and I didn't set up lun1...

Anyway, I know this isn't a linux question (yet) until I move the raid onto 
the new server, but I'm at a loss where to turn for some pointers.
