Woody: It should be possible to use AlphaBIOS. Search the list for the
various download-locations of milos, if those provided by Debian do
not work. Still SRM is suggested.

Sarge/d-i: No one has stepped forward to develop/maintain the
installer for use with milos. So if you play around you might get it
working by odd chance (i.e., you know the manual steps at the right
point of time), but it is not expected to work. Either use SRM or
first install woody and then do a dist-upgrade.

What is the reason for not switching to SRM? Unsupported hardware?
