[lug] Alpha install

The installation should be pretty straight forward. The two screwy things

1)	BSD partitioning. You have to use it on SRM. If the installer doesn't do
it automatically, you really need to read up on this before doing it. It's
different than PC style partitioning.

2)	SRM Variables. Setting the default variables so the system boots without
a console command.

Will do.  We're getting a DS10 to replace the older 5000, and the DS10 is
listed on RH's Alpha compatibility list as "certified".  I'm hoping that
means installation is as easy as on an Intel box.  In any case, I'll get
with you next week to let you know how things are going.

Thanks for the offer!
