Are you sure your NIC is broken? What about IRIX, does the nic work
there? Did you try: 
  echo "2048 32767" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range
from the installation manual as well?

Yes. Create an SGI disklabel on that disk and use dvhtool(available for
i386 too) to put the installer(tftpboot.img) into the volumeheader.
