I'm hacking on mopd to support booting pmax kernels, and was wondering
if any of the Alphas boot via MOP, and what file formats are used.  For
the pmax, some models can't tftp boot kernels over a certain size (or at
all!) so having a working mopd is a win there - are there any similar
problems with any of the Alphas?

At this stage, I've got ECOFF kernels booting on the pmax via MOP, and
am working towards loading ELF kernels as well.  I'm guessing that it
shouldn't be too hard to do the same for Alphas if the need exists.
