In Reply to: [gentoo-alpha] gentoo on alpha 2100A? by Paul Baughman
Hi there
I am running Gentoo quite smoothly on a DEC AlphaServer 1000A, which is also 
EV5. In fact, this machine has been serving successfully and reliably as our 
mail(sendmail+clamav+spamassassin+mailscanner+imp)/ftp(proftp)/web(apache) 
server at my local organization.

All the best,
Joao Patricio
