Right, there wasn't space on our SSTO floppy to add the 4100. I have
a relatively simple solution for this, but I haven't yet, well, done it.
So, there are two ways to go from here:
1. You, or one of us, (someone with an already running NetBSD/alpha)
needs to make a custom boot floppy that has 4100 but doesn't have
some other crud...(so it still fits)
2. You could netboot. GENERIC has AlphaServer 4100 support and the
boot blocks are not platform-dependent in any way.
