Alpha installation


I have the debian-30r0-alpha-binary Cd set
I also have the JumpStart-1.4.1 CD

When I try to boot to either cd using 'boot dqb0 -flags 0,0'
I get "unknown compression method" and it goes to the aboot prompt.

When I try to boot to either cd using 'boot dqb0 -flags 0'
it seems to start reading from the cd, but halts after about 40 seconds, 
the screen changes color, and the last line written to the screen is:  
SMC37c669 Super I/O Controller found @ 0x370

When I tried to create boot floppies from the Debian set, (on a linux system
using dd) 
I get a smaller block count on the floppy than is on the cd for root.bin and
and they don't work anyway.  (I'd prefer to boot from CD, though.)

Can someone please help?
