        My sentiments too.. What I have been doing is installing NetBSD on my
Alphastation with an eye to building a Jensen kernel and then putting the drive
into the Jensen and booting it...

        I'm assuming that the Jensen items from the ALPHA or GENERIC kernel
configs is all that I need. I am using 1.5 here, do I need to update the kernel
source or do I need any patches or special setting??

        When I boot the Jensen with the 'cdhdtape' image, the kernel seems to get
confused detecting where the vga display is at. I can get it to netboot as far as
loading the bootstrap, but that seems to just crash back to the SRM prompt. Does
that ring a bell to anyone who's been through this before?

I think I'm starting to get close,
