God how I wish so, I have the hardware, but not the knowledge. I have a
working Dual 667Mhz UP2000 (ev67), a Dual 533Mhz AS1200 (ev6), a
Personal Workstation 500au (ev5, iirc), a Single 533 SX164 (pca56) and
even a functional 233 Multia (ev4). Back when Red Hat had an Alpha
distribution, I used to support it. But I am not a developer. If you
ever do get an Alpha project going, I can test it on a bunch of
hardware. Right now I only run the UP2000 on a day-to-day basis.

I have not been able to build a working Alpha kernel in a long time. I
however won't have time to look at this again until 2004. I'll be in
Manila, Philippines from next Saturday until Dec.15, and won't really be
home until after the holidays.
