[..snip..] 
Linux should run fine on your Indy including audio and XFree86.
There are several distributions available like a Red Hat miniport
available at 
 ftp://oss.sgi.com/pub/linux/mips
and Debian available at:
 ftp.debian.org:/debian/dists/woody/main/disks-mips/current
The later one might be slightly easier to set up since it comes with a
netbooted installer. For more information see
 http://www.debian.org/ports/mips
and
 http://www.linux-debian.de/howto/debian-mips-woody-install.html
Regards,
 -- Guido
