RE: Slllloooowwww Alpha
It might just be that I'm an idiot, but I have an SX164 that when I
installed any distro of linux that it would fail on some error, I can't
remember what error it was though, the last install that was good was
about 5 years ago w/ red hat 5.2 (I think) but I placed FreeBSD on it
and it has no problems now

It should, assuming that there's some attempt to handle the checks, IIRC
(been a long while since I looked at that bit of the code).
It may not have been the RAM, but that tends to be it in most cases.
