Not using FreeBSD it can't.  FreeBSD on PPC processors is under
development, but by no means ready for anyone to actually use yet.

You might have more luck over with our fiends at NetBSD, who do have
PPC ports available.  Don't know about installing over the 'net -- you
might have more luck by trying to find a way to replace your broken
brive with a cheap off-the-shelf alternative.
