right now the system boots into AlphaBIOS each time.
The only time I've been able to boot it into SRM is by
hitting that little tiny switch on the motherboard. Is
it possible to boot into SRM from a cold boot AFTER
AlphaBIOS has been loaded? 

There is an CMOS/Advance/Console Selection option to
set the console type while in AlphaBIOS. It said that
on the next COLD boot it will go to that type of
console. I've try setting this to Digital Unix then
F10 twice, then Enter to save it. Cold boot, but it
still came back into AlphaBIOS.
