That would depend on the processor installed. Check the manuals here:

You should be able to run any MIPS based/IRIX software for SGIs. I
don't know what IRIX release you'll need; perhaps someone else can
provide that info.

Its my understanding that it uses SIMMS. See:

I *think* the answer to these is yes, but check the usual web sites
(futuretech, Ian Mapelson's SGI site, etc.) for info.
I got 2 Indigos sans hard drives recently but haven't had a chance to
explore more in depth than unpacking them.
