afaik, there is no FPA (flat panel interface) for the Octane to
use the 1600SW.
Many people have tried (with varying degrees of success) to
use SGI's MLA (multi link adapter), but there are problems
using the vfc (video format compiler) on the Octane to generate
the correct .vfo file for 1600x1024 at 60Hz., with the proper
timing for the MLA.
for details (Read the section about the Octane).
