I only have _one_ alpha which is equipped with the 4d20 and runs
NetBSD 1.4.3 at the moment.
-> How to upgrade to 1.5.1... (or better -current?) in this situation?
Is it possible to compile a 1.5.1... kernel and userland with an
existing 1.4... system? (No alpha cross package in pkgsrc)
Otherwise I need an inst ramdisk and a generic kernel without the tga
stuff, I guess...
