You must remember that in regards to alphas, i'm a
complete newbie.

I went into AlphaBIOS and went into apb. I then:
  cd floppy
  cp up1000.pal /dev/sda1
  cp apb.exe
This cannot be done (already there)...

How do I configure AlphaBIOS to boot this.  Its
telling me that /dev/sda2 (which is my root partition)
does not exist.

I copied the generic rescue disk, but how do I get
into it from alphabios?
