Hmm, I think it was thorpej that actually pointed this out to Fred (after 
several hours of frustration, etc :-)

The problem here is that DEC sells a few different models, and one is with 
bigger disk, but the gotcha is that you lose the PCI slot.  It's cheap to get 
a 3.5" disk external with all the speed/space you need.  It's nice to be able 
to drop a 100Mb/s Ether card into the PCI slot, among other things...  You do 
this at home right :-)

Until we get a couple more developers on the alpha port, it would seem that you are the stuckee, Chris :-)
