I'll find out how to tell the Pyxis rev from software or physical
inspection.  It's possible you'd have to remove the heatsink on the
(Pyxis) chip, though, which I wouldn't recommend :-)

You *can* run MILO from SRM rather than from AlphaBIOS.  I'm not sure
of the details; I would say to look at the way the Slink rescue floppy
is set up as an example (it does this).

Perhaps others know of a way of using serial console with AlphaBIOS? 
I think there is a way.
