    Anyone know where (if) any ISO's exist for Redhat9 for the Alpha platform? Can't find any on redhat's ftp, or mirror ftp sites :(

        Since Compaq owns the rights to the Alpha processor from when they purchased Digital they are in charge of keeping the Alpha code for redHat up to date..

        looks like they're up to 7.2 only though. :tears:

          can you guys enlighten me with a link or something,
          what is alpha.
          I think that regular cpus are x86
          so would alpha be RISC??

            The Alpha processor is a 64-bit processor that Compaq is phasing out in favour of Itanium :( Very nice in it's day (and still alright today). Yes it's a RiSC based processor, and it's been around for quite some time.

                So what youre saying is:
                High end stuff that you'll never afford or use.
