Success!

I have successfully burnt and booted my SGI Octane from Kumba's X-RC6
distribution. The trick was in the burning. I was burning it from SUSE
in a DVD burner. For whatever reason, it didn't work. I then tried
burning it using cdrecord under Windows XP. I know everything says you
can't burn the disk in Windows, but it was the only other machine I
had with a burner. It worked.

For the record I used this file:
http://smithii.com/files/cdrtools-2.01-bootcd.ru-w32.zip
downloaded from this site: http://smithii.com/cdrtools
with this command: cdrecord -vv -pad speed=12 dev=1,0,0 -tao
livecd-mips3-gcc4-X-RC6.img

I've used the disk to boot my Octane and my Indy, both into X without
any other problems.

Thanks everyone for your help!
Now I just need to figure out how to install and boot from the hard drive!
