I've certainly tested installing etch on alpha recently, but not on a
machine requiring low memory mode. I have no idea what the minimum memory
requirements for the installer might be on alpha.

Yes, that pretty much says it all.
I haven't looked at the low-memory mode menu in quite some time. Do you
have the option at this point to mount swap space? That's the only way
you're going to get enough virtual memory to be able to continue the install
of etch; there's certainly no way that the installer's memory requirements
on alpha are going to be lowered for etch.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
