I'm willing to help you out on this. I have 6 alpha machines (4 of which
are debian supported now, the other 2 are turbo channel machines for
which I did some work to get the linux kernel to work, but they aren't
ready yet). I also maintain the quik package (oldworld powermac
bootloader) and comaintain sibyl (Broadcom swarm bootloader). I'm
familiar with alpha, mips, powerpc and arm architectures. I hope I can
help you here.
