IRIX 6.5 supports pretty much everything from Indys up through their
big Origin servers. I don't recall precisely where the cut-off is with
support of the older systems. Certainly not any of the R3000 based
ones, but I don't remember if the older straight R4000 Indigo2s were or
not, but I know that the R5000 Indys and the R4400 Indigo2s are
supported--probably the R4600 Indys too--and basically everything more
recent than those.

Get me the details of his system, and I'll see what I can find.
IRIX is quite a nice Unix.
