This is a known problem. Did you try the AlphaBIOS version of linload?
If not, that may be the exact problem. The non-AlphaBIOS linload tries to
load MILO in a designated memory location which, coincidentally, is taken
already (I believe by AlphaBIOS :P). The AlphaBIOS version of linload
corrects this problem supposedly.

This is probably related to the above. I believe there's even an
AlphaBIOS version of MILO there too.

Hmmm...well, like I said before, I think that the AS/1000A's aren't
classified as "Miatas". This could conceivably cause a problem since I'm
sure the Miatas are special cases. I'll look into it tonight (my work day
has been rather busy here, unfortunately, and I didn't get time yet to do
so) and see what I can drum up for you.
