So you want to shift the whole flashing program plus the new ROM
contents through the serial link into your alpha and START it?

In this case, maybe it's the easiest thing to just squeeze the firmware
update MOP image into it and start it. It should basically be a PIC
image, so that should work.

If it fscks up your box, we can still take the soldering iron.
