New alpha owner, (ab)user
Ok, so I bought a Multia 166 alpha (ev4, whatever that means?) box from
cpu micro mart, and then got 16 megs of simms and a used 1.2 gig scsi
drive for another $100.
All told this project has cost me less than $225.00. Not bad for my first
64 bit machine, huh?
Anyway, I have used (and like) Debian on my pentium 133, and am going to
use it for the Alpha. I have gotten about halfway through the instalation
process, so I know I can do it, but....
...what do I do with MILO to get this sucker to auto boot? I have left a
3.46 meg partition at the top of the drive because that is recomended in
the README file.
...Also, what size swap space should I have? I put it at 128 megs for
the moment, the max? Is this silly, or what?
The Multia uses an ARC console, I feel it is a bit confusing, but I guess
it should be easy with a little instrucions from you fine gentlemen and
