No, there's a note that the DEC-series of Alpha servers are withdrawn
and unsupported from version V5.1, so the last supported version for the
XMI- and Turbochannel-bus machines are V5.0A.

I dont, but judging from that partnumber you have an AlphaServer 4100,
which is totally different from the DEC4000, aside the Alpha
architecture. Your machine will work *fine* with V5.1B-1.
