Hey, I feel your pain. I too have recently acquired the same machine with no ram etc. You are in luck though, all you need is some 72 pin parity ram, if you look up DMT technologies they have it in sticks of 8megs each for about 32 bucks for 64 megs. The hard drive is also an easy to come by item, from what I have heard watch out when purchasing too fast a drive though...ie 7200 rpm or better since the drive can create a large quantity of heat in the small case. You will also need something to view the display with, dmt also has monitors, but if you look around you may be able to find something bigger or you could get the converter cable to use a normal peecee style monitor. Be careful to check scan rates when purchasing old sgi monitors as I burnt one up in the blink of a screen. Once all is said and done as far as the hardware goes then set yourself up a network and check out: http://reality.sgi.com/raju/SGI-Linux-mini-HOWTO.html or just do a search off google for <sgi indy linux howto> and you will find many documents on getting Linux fired up on your indy!
