This document assumes you have read all related quake and xquake posts in
the axp-list. Take only what you need to make yours work. The ftp sites
were good 01 Nov 96.

[the above will also work with 'xquake' from the alpha_linux_quake101.tgz distribution]
recommendation:
if you received your UDB with linux/alpha installed, make a floppy with the vmlinux.gz
image on it and set it aside. you might be glad you did.
