IIRC you just have to put the rom-image of AlhaBios on a floppy and
use the "arc" command in SRM. No, it's not documented with "help" :)

The other possibility is to use the failsafe-booting of the
SX164. Switch the dip 7 on the motherboard to off and put the floppy
with the rom-image into the diskdrive. The machine should emit a
"beep --- beep beep --- beep beep beep" and then loads the BIOS from
floppy. The SX164 even talks about booting MILO directly from failsafe
mode but my only try did not work out...

P.S.: I hope that there are no subversions of the SX board with
      different dips... *shudder*
