What I did a few days ago was disabling sed (by replacing it with a shell
script returning 0) from the second console just before selecting
"Configure the Base System," and then enabling it back by linking to

I believe this sed script bug is not Alpha-specific and will be hopefully

(Back to the problem with rotten binaries, I certainly did not have it.
It may be related to the base system installation method - I installed
mine over NFS.)
