Re: Installing

get the linux version 7.1 for alpha system on linux website .
at the >> prompt type show config | more
look for processor line the chip should be 21164a-2 or greater
memory should be at least 64k
keep in mind linux runs on at least 2gigabyte disk to load /usr /boot and root
at the >> prompt type show device
the system should have a cd drive
boot to the cd drive type --- >boot device -flags 0
follow the alpha install guide from the redhat site
if the cd boots to the aboot> prompt type 3 boot to text mode
use fdisk to format and partition the disk

Re: Installing

Please, can someone confirm that information? Can one install redhat linux on Digital Server 3000 model 3300? This is the Dec 3000 Series Workstations containing TURBOchannel busses. This is usually listed on Unsupported Alpha Systems. Is this changed?
