What is the possibility of porting netbsd/alpha to those unfortunates 
with an arc/alphabios only system? I got my first risc machine: an Alpha 
XL266 but it only runs Linux and NT.  I've actually considered switching 
to NT, but not because linux's quirks. MILO, the bootloader for linux, isn't 
really maintained any more.  Compiling it requires some devily I'll never 
	So, is there any possibility?  I know the FAQ mentions it, but 
what would be involved?
