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 :-)
