Quick question then... how do I get on the mailing list that develops the d-i? I don't see a specific one on lists.d.o. (I could be blind though) I have a DEC Alpha 1000/4 and a DEC Alpha 2100/4 (sable) that could be stand a linux install on them. Currently I have no valid license of OSF/1 or Tru64 for them, except a 1 user "root-only" license. The 2100 would be the nasty one to get it to work on. They both require milo, the sable has never booted linux "proper" ever, as it's is the "early version" I am interested in helping out. But be warned, I come from a HARDWARE background not a programming one. -- greg, email@example.com REMEMBER ED CURRY! http://www.iwethey.org/ed_curry I should welcome flagellation by your ovoviviparous torso.
