You're lucky; gatekeeper seems to have a full mirror of underneath /pub/BSD/NetBSD. The snapshot
would be under NetBSD/arch/alpha. I'll have a bootable disk which

port-alpha for the notice about this.

The ISBN is 1-55558-145-5, and below that barcode there's this
number: EY-T132E-DP. I hope that's your part number.
