Hi Harald,

this seems as good a point as any to ask --- are there any plans to make
the ET4000W32 server work on the ALPHA? I tried compiling it, but found
that there is a good reason it wasn't included in the set of servers to
compile... (there is a number of assembler files which are certainly
not ALPHA code ;-). Well, at that point, I am a bit lost, as I don't
speak 386 assembler and thus can't figure out what that code does. It
doesn't seem to be all that much, though, so maybe, possibly...... ?
