You cannot use MILO on this model of Alpha. You must boot from SRM
console.

If nobody else has addressed your problem, write me back and I will
send you a special custom verrsion of the Red Hat 4.0 CD that I know will
work with the DEC 2000A. Of course, I have not tried this in a
"headless" configuration (i.ei with a serial console rather than a
VGA and keyboard. You may have to borrow these to perform the
installation).
