I'ld like to add one more:
Is there any migration path to Alpha/PCI machines not involving buying
other Alpha hardware first? I.e.: will I be (at some time in the future)
be able to just crosscompile from my NetBSD/i386 machine and get a
bootable Alphastation? I sure would be willing to contribute, but don't
have any room for yet another machine...
A PCI SCSI and an ethernet driver would be sufficiant for bootstrap, I guess?
Gotta trademark my login....
