  | You can do it using the SROM debugger, but it's going to be hard.

Thanks for the suggestion.   I will start looking at the docs I have
and see if I can find the details, I might have enough stuff already
(but that would be at home at the minute, where the alpha is not, yet).

S records I can deal with, I have more S record generation stuff than
I care to think about, and have dealt with it in way too tedious detail
in the past - so provided I can figure out the .rom file format (straight
binary image would be nice) and the base address to stick in the S records
to make it load somewhere sensible, I can cope with that part of the task.
The "set up the MMU and bridges" part will be more of a challenge...

But this is not anything urgent (unless I also kill the other motherboard).
I got two of the things with the intent that one would actually get used,
and the other would sit on a shelf for some time into the future.  All I have
achieved so far is to make the choice of which gets used, and which sits,
a pretty easy one...

If/when I manage to bring it back to life, I will document exactly how
it gets done, and make available any code I need to produce to do it.
