We got an 500 Mhz Alpha a few days ago, and I really would like to
switch from Redhat 4.2 to Debian too.
The 6 steps for the base system work fine. ( I additionally created
/etc/hosts, but that is probably just needed for networking ).
I would be very interested in the further procedure too, so if
somebody has an idea ... ( should I use dselect or not, what packages )
