For some reason there is no mention of UNIX or SRM anywhere in the firware,
peroiod.  The SRM users guide suggests that if the option to update SRM
is not present, one should simply add the environment variable HAVE_SRM_CONSOLE
and set it to TRUE.

I don't have any of the hardware docs to this board, but I am pretty sure
there is a way to have the machine overwrite it's firmware with am image
from a disk at boot time.  My AlphaPC64 can do this... I would be suprised
if the PC164 didn't have this.
