Sorry, should have been more specific. Less than a Celeron 400 (about $100
including the extra bits you need) plus an ASUS P2B ($125). And, yes, I
paid under $200 each for the last two 164SX/533 boards I bought. And I have
the happy feeling of running NetBSD on DEC Alpha hardware. :-)
Now, this weekend, I need to get NetBSD 1.4 onto an AlphaStation 4/233.
Should be easy by now, but we'll see ...
P.S. There is a lot of six AlphaServer 4000 motherboards (210264/400), going
for $1000 right now. Seems ideal for a group purchase ..
