#229863 of 229868, if you got to their Website to answer.
This is what I sent him:
Perhaps you'd find more luck trying Linux Live CDs or Unix, since there are so few Google leads for this an old server?

I wonder who, if anyone, still supports Alpha-based systems. The last
one I used (back in the early 1990s) was running OSF/1 and the chassis
was about the same size as my HP dc5850 business-classes chasses:
of which I have two (bought from Newegg) with one running CentOS 6 and
the other running OpenIndiana; they both also double-boot (with each
OS on its own HD) WinXP and Win7 since I needed a WinXP on a faster
system than my Dell Latitude D600 laptop:
and a 32-bit Win7 to test some astronomy software; my only other Win7
box is a 64-bit that I bought on a special deal from Frys Electronics
when a friend's HP A6300F desktop went belly-up on 1 June 2011 (common
problem with motherboard failures in that model) and he asked me for
help finding a replacement. I found this:
My friend and I each bought one since it was too good of a deal to
ignore; I've since upgraded mine to 8GB RAM and added an Intel GiGE
NIC, ANTEC EA-430D "green" PSU, and an EVGA 9800GT video card and
found free User manual, Service manual, parts manual and more here:
I was surprised that eserviceinfo.com (moves around from Bulgaria,
Albania, Ukraine, Romania, Russia, Kazahkstan, et al to keep ahead of
the Interpol tracking) didn't have the manuals since I can get all HP
service manuals there for free which, for monochrome and color laser
LaserJet printers, is extremely helpful and useful.
