Today, when I went to boot up, it went right into the rest of the
install, just like I expected it to do on Friday.  No problems at all. 
Now I just need to get X working and figure out how to let users telnet
(or ssh) in, as well as using ftp.  Those items aren't Alpha specific,
but can anyone send me in the right direction for the networking
