There's another NetBSD/Alpha 1.2_ALPHA snapshot (dated 960615)
available from at:

It includes all the wonderful stuff that you've come to know and love
(and sometimes miss...  like /usr/include/*, /usr/bin/telnet,
etc. 8-), as well as my most recent changes.

The root image is slightly different than previous versions, in that
its /etc/rc is a special version.  If you (try to) boot multi-user
using that /etc/rc, it'll remount / and /usr so that they're writable,
to make it easier to configure the system, and return you to
single-user.  The normal /etc/rc is in /alphadist/rc.real.  (the
/etc/rc script provided will tell you that if, after it's done its
thing, you try to go to multi-user mode.  (One of the reasons I hacked
this up was so that i could burn a disk image on to a CD-ROM, and have
it mount temporary file systems for me automatically, so that i could
edit things, etc.  I plan to burn a disk of this image, or one closer
to 1.2, for myself so that i can more easily install new systems.  8-)
