Yes, you can. There is a port to the alpha (it's not part of Hamm/2.0, but
we hope to have it ready for Slink/2.1) availabe in dists/unstable.
The AS800 should be supported, though there is no Debian kernel for it I
think, so you'd need to get your kernel and MILO own from
ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/DEC/Linux-Alpha/. There is also a list of
systems <-> nicknames so you can figure out what kernel get (your machine
is a Noritake and since it's a 5/xxx you need teh noritake-s-5 kernel).
