I don't know for sure, but I'd be honestly shocked if the current
releases didn't run on this machine. An AlphaServer 4100 is *not* a
DEC 4000...the AS4100 isn't really all that old. Even with Carly "Make
Money at Any Cost" Fiorina at the helm, it'd be absurd of them to drop
support for a machine that can be configured as a quad-processor 600MHz
EV56 with gigabytes of RAM.
