   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.
