I know what the alpha boot problem on mine is, from what I understand, this
alpha box wasn't supported in 2.2.x until 2.2.17pre12 (kernel I'm using
now).  2.0 supported it.  (alphaserver 1000a 4/266)

I got linux installed using aboot disk from gatekeeper.dec.com (I think).  I
have one problem.  I can't get it to boot from hdd.  (from memory) tells me
that it finds a valid boot block(or device?) and says it's reading 165
blocks.  Then immediately it says can't read (this is the part I can't
remember, I'm not at home, will be in 30 min from now).

I have 2 1gb drives in it and I put the aboot loader on both, neither will
boot (aboot doesn't even get loaded)
