Thanks, all seems to be well.

System boot kicked up a lot of "Warning unexpected short range" 18432/18432,
but booted fine, and the install (via NFS) was trouble free.  I dd'ed the
image with a linux i386 system, which doesn't have (AFAIK) raw disk devices,
but using the block device seemed fine.

Kernel config time now.....

OK, I created a 'floppy' image for the TC alphas (3000/xxx) that should also
work fine if dd(1)'ed to a HD.
This should be dd(1)'ed onto a floppy or HD with:
dd if=tcboot of=/dev/rfd0a bsk
Please let us know how this works.
