Wow those are neat looking. They are RISC R5000 cpu's like 210Mhz (RISC) yes ? I think you are in for a battle. You can weave your own LTSP for these I think with another OS. Find a linux distro for that hardward and see if it works. These are not x86 workstations so an "out-of the box" K12LTSP install won't work for you. Try to find a linux distro for that hardware. They did not come with IRIX ? Might have to go FreeBSD, I don't recall seeing a linux distro for the R5000 cpu. I would love to be wrong for your sake. :) ;) They are cool are they blue or black ?
Hope this helps,

Yes they are blue & black .... these are 180 Mhz R5000 boxes with about 1GB memory & no hard drive (the drives were removed for security reasons) therefore no IRIX.
I would like to get a detailed "Howto" to initially configure these, as I believe that I'll have to setup an SGI partiiton on the SCSI drive before I can load any Linux distro...... so any help will be appreciated
