Hello,
I have a PWS 500a on which NT works "perfectly". I try to use linux on
it (instead of windows). I succed in installing milo (v1.5) but none of
the kernels I have found boot up. Is it a wrong milo version ?
Thanks by advance/
ejmp

How did you install it ? Your question is as much fuzzy to me as:

- my car does not start, do you know why ?

Is it Milo does not find the kernel ?
is it milo not finding the initrd ?
is it the kernel panics loading the STATIC modules ?
is is the kernel not loading the loadable modules ?
is it a / mouting problem ?

Did you put milo in a seperate partition as recommended ? big enough ?
wrote a conf file ?

My first attempts to install Milo by reading Gentoo tutos was a failure
for 1 week. I had to install Debian in "full automatic" mode and then
study what it did before I could understand how to do it properly.

Do yourself (and the machine) a favour and reflash it with SRM.
Here's an old thread on the topic of switching firmware:

Dear Emmanuel,

The Milo was a stripped down console used in some of the early
Alphas. The best is to get the last version of SRM *and* ARC. There
is plenty of room for them, in fact, that's the stock setup in the PWS
machines. SRM will boot Tru64, VMS Linux and BSD. From SRM you can
type the command ARC and get into the Windows console and boot NT or
Windows 2000 on a separate hard drive.

Good luck. If you can not find the firmware, eMail me off-list and I
will try to find a link.

IIRC some of the PWS 'a' machines, as opposed to 'au', don't have
enough flash to hold both SRM and ARC/AlphaBIOS.
