Mopd is just abother boot loader - providing you can get it to
accept the alpha image I don't see why it shouldn't work.
(If I recall it has a certain predeliction for a.out)
I've used it to boot a NetBSD/vax system from a NetBSD/i386,

NetBSD/vax (which may be of some interest) at:
Give we ship with a mopd it would make a lot of sense to support
it under NetBSD/alpha (if possible)
