Bloody alpha ignorant


I already installed Debian both on x86 and HPPA, now I'm trying to
install on a (still) working Alpha box.

alphalinux.org seems to be down at the moment, thus I ask here:

The label on the machine says:

alpha XP 150

a) Is Debian alpha supported on that?

b) Is there any way of finding out more about my particular hardware
   while running OSF/1?

In the log after a reboot:

vmunix: Alpha boot: available memory from 0x648000 to 0x2000000
vmunix: Digital UNIX V4.0E  (Rev. 1091); Wed May
vmunix: physical memory = 32.00 megabytes.
vmunix: available memory = 25.78 megabytes.
vmunix: using 76 buffers containing 0.59 megabytes of memory
vmunix: DEC2000 model 300 system

Aha! It's a "Jensen" model -- so linux should work. Wasn't too keen of
the Hurd anyway...

vmunix: Firmware revision: 2.2
vmunix: PALcode: Digital UNIX version 1.35

Huh? Does this need to be updated?

c) How do I boot from the CD I created?   
   I mean, this is really a top question. The box can boot from CD,
   can it?
