I have a DEC Alphastation 500a and need to decide on an OS to put on it
since I want to use it as a MySQL server.
I've got a choice of WinNT, RH 7.3, Debain, FreeBSD and NetBSD. I've
successfully loaded WindowsNT but I can't seem to find any alpha
software for it so I'm leaning towards *nix systems instead. I've not
been able to load the RH 7.3 supplied by but I have
been able to load Debain and had it working at one time but I wiped it
out for some reason and have to reinstall it again. Anyhow, does anyone
else have any suggestions on this subject? I'm leaning towards the BSD
options at the moment.
