I assume you intend to buy a harddisk for the Indy ? Any narrow SCSI
disk should work.
If you have another Unix machine on your network you can try netbooting the
Indy via bootp/tftp and run the installer via a ramdisk image or NFS root
file system. As my only SGI machine is a R3000 Indigo I never tried this
myself with a Linux kernel on SGI hardware but we managed to get sash (the
IRIX standalone shell) booted over the network on the Indigo.
