When you have an other Alpha, you can try to
compose a harddisk (or a set of harddisks) that
can be booted on the Samsung 164UX/BX Alpha.
A set of harddisks is maybe the easiest:
You will need a harddisk with a fat-partition
with all the arcbiosstuf and a kernel that can
read the second BSD-partitioned disk.
On the second disk is a very basic generic
debian-installation made on the other Alpha.
milo boots the kernel on the first disk and the
kernel boots the installation on the second
