Just grab a 2.2 kernel from ftp.kernel.org (or a local mirror)
the 2.0 kernels needed a patch set for the alpha.  Different people
on the list have had diff opinions on which rev of the 2.2 works the
best. I've had decent luck on my cabriolet on most of the revsions,
and am currently running 2.2.12 just fine.  Have Fun.
