Arch Linux & Alpha Bios

Is it possible somehow to install Arch on a computer that has Alpha bios..??
I´ve tried to find anything about it... But I sure seems it look pretty difficult...
Could someone please tell me how to do it?? I have found a installations guide for turbo linux, but I´m not sure that it´s the same with arch?? But if someone would help me with this problem that would be great... But please explain it simple - that I´m not that much into English...

THX


Just getting better .... All the time

Re: Arch Linux & Alpha Bios

Hello Pegue,

As "alpha Bios" is some time used for moded / beta bios that are used by enthusisasts, I'd like to be sure what is that "Alpha bios" in your post. If it is the same, or a special brand (like Award, etc) ?

Re: Arch Linux & Alpha Bios

if you're talking about the Alpha CPU supercomputer, then no. Arch only works on i686, which means Pentium Pro architecture. Alpha is entirely different.
