There are a few ways:

1- If you have enough space on your system, use tar xvf / backup.tar then ftp it over the new machine and tar xvf backup.tar
2- Using your current backup software if you have any and reload it over.
3- Do an "ufsdump" "dumpfs" ... I'm not sure about the command to dump the whole filesystem to on IRIX.
4- Do an NFS mount from the old to the new and copy the files over using -p switch to preserve owner and group id.

   One special case about symlinks, only a backup and ufsdump
will preserve your symbolic links.

If you don't have enough disk space, mount you SGI(INDY) or use rsh in conjunction with tar.
