I got ISO-Images of debian 2.2r5 stable for our noname alpha. As you can
see, I boot from CD. I tried it with floppy, too, and got the same problem.
Description: after loading Milo and entering:
MILO> boot scd0:/boot/linux root=/dev/scd0 load_ramdisk=1
a endless loop start with following message:
device_interrupt: illegal interrupt 3?
the "?" stands for "I don't know what number", because it could be 36, 37,
38, 39 or whatever else, it's scrolling too fast for my eyes. But it's
shure, that this are two digits. B
Then I can only reboot the machine, and then I have to do all the settings
in the firmware again, from ground up. I have to set the default environment
variables and the default configuration of the machine's firmware.
I choose eb64p because on the Aspen Homepage they told to use eb64, but I
only found eb64p.
greetings + thank's for reading

The problem you reported was in the Potato (Debian 2.2) version of the
boot-floppies package. This package has been improved for the
upcoming Woody release, and we believe this issue is closed -- or, at
worst, we have no data that this bug still exists in Woody.
We accumulate a lot of bugs in the boot-floppies package, so in the
interest of trying to identify bugs which can be fixed, we are closing
out stale bugs.
We encourage you to test with the Woody boot-floppies, versions 3.0.22
or later. If you have problems in booting, you should make sure you
are booting with the right subarch or flavor, and if you are, figure
out which kernel-image-2.* package is responsible for the kernel on
those disks. Then file the bug against the kernel-image-2.* package.
If you can't figure out the right package, it's fine to just file it
against boot-floppies, or ask us to reopen the bug we closed.
We apologize (in some cases) that we were not able to find a solution
earlier. We hope you do not feel that we ignored your bug, and that
you help make sure the Debian woody release is as good as it can be.
