is a good place to start. It notes you need SRM 5.3-3 to go from AlphaBIOS to 
SRM, then you can update to others. More info may be found at Compaq's web 
site, http://ftp.digital.com/pub/Digital/Alpha/firmware/. I haven't 
personally made the switch from AlphaBIOS to SRM (my machines were SRM to 
begin with), so I can't offer any other advice.
