No, I could not find it in the config system, though to be honest I
haven't looked closely and may have missed something obvious.

Indeed.  It is my understanding that only MILO can boot my AlphaBIOS
system.  I have been booting this way since I bought the Alpha new,
sometime in 1997 or 1998.  If more recent developments have obsoleted
MILO (without requiring me to switch to SRM), I'd be interested.
