I still have a draft copy of the instructions. Might be a couple of
days before I can find time to put them somewhere on the web.

That just might work. I recall upgrading alpha systems from Lenny
by such methods but it is a while ago (maybe two years) since I have
done that. I would be wary of the getting the official
2.6.32-11~bpo50+1 linux-image for alpha from archive.debian.org. The
Alpha linux kernel was in bad shape at that time. You might be better
off using the unofficial kernels I compiled for the build daemons some
time ago, still available at www2.phys.waikato.ac.nz/cree.
