Debian on the Alpha
I was all set to install Debian (slink) on an old Alpha box I fell into,
and suddenly started receiving a (BIOS type) message that the slot
configuration was lost and that I needed to insert the ECU (Eisa
configuration utility?) to repair it. Since I "fell into" this box (i.e.
my employer had it from years ago, and allowed me to take it off their
hands), and its pretty old, I don't have all the goodies, which I assume
the ECU disk is.
Does anyone know where I can get this disk? No luck searching Digital's
(er, Compaq's) web site.
