If you don't have a Linux kernel with SGI disklabel support compiled in (which I don't), then that won't work anyway. It's not just that. There are a bunch of other problems.
Gee, recompiling a kernel is really difficult, isn't it?

Then there are hassles with GRUB. There are many threads by experienced IRIX users having major problems mounting IRIX drives. So, no, it's not easy.

On top of that, after many attempts to read my IRIX drive with Linux, it now doesn't boot in the Indy. Probably it got corrupted somehow. Just thinking about it makes me violently angry and makes me want to smash any computer I see running Linux.
It is easy. You obviously have absolutely no idea what you're doing. This is a classic example of someone who spends more time collecting things than using them.
