loaclhost.telent.net (a.k.a cvs.telent.net) has a very ill hard disk and is down until further notice. Right now I don't even have any other device I can boot it from (or indeed, media to boot) so I'm going to have to spend some time finding a cdrom drive and a suitable Linux Alpha cdrom image to put in it before any further progress is noted. Weekend project, i think.
No, I can't just put it in a PC. (1) I don't have one spare, (2) the disk uses weirdo Alpha partition tables: the effort involved in digging out a suitable machine and doing necessary kernel stuff to it would be better spent on getting the alpha running again. Yes, it's possible. No, "just" is not the right word.
