My alpha will stay. But it shows some strange segmentation faults and
I am afraid it will not live very much. So I want to quickly move and
keep it for maintaining aboot, if possible.

Great. Unfortunately the Apple-machines look a little space
constraint, and I know how quickly add-on cards and additional drives
pile up, so I am still deciding. (And I figured the IBM Power-machines
are quite a bit beyond my budget).
