If it's one of those rare PCI-equipped 486 mobo's then I'd like to
have it for testing some PCI-drivers. Mainly for booting though and
via gdb serial line ... 486'es are really good, still. No fans, small,
almost no heat! :-)

Anyway, I cannot seem to find a gnu-latest.tar.gz for the new libio stuff
on alpha. I tried, despite better knowledge, to upgrade my old stdio
install using apt. And since that failed, of course, I thought I'd
reinstall ... but I cannot find a gnu-latest.tar.gz from this year,
have I gone blind, or lost track completely?

Hmmmm, or am I losing a point or two here? Is it that you reinstall
with an old/existsing gnu-latest which in turn "transforms" that
to a libio install after a couple of of magic ./native-installs?
