A bootloader which can be started from the SRM console

The aboot program is the preferred way of booting Linux when using SRM
firmware (the firmware normally used to boot an DEC UNIX). Aboot supports
the creation of bootable block devices and contains a program which can
load Linux kernels from a filesystem which is bootable by SRM.  Aboot
also supports direct booting from various filesystems (ext2, ISO9660,
UFS), booting of executable object files (ELF and ECOFF), booting of
compressed kernels, network booting (using bootp), partition tables in
DEC UNIX format, and interactive booting and default configurations for
SRM consoles that cannot pass long option strings.

If you are installing Fedora or Red Hat Linux on an Alpha, you'll need to
install the aboot package.
