You can download it from ftp.redhat.com
I could be wrong, but I would be surprised if they did not have it.

Hey, I just went to their site, and yes you can download alpha there. No problem. I don't think they have alpha for there newest release. Look back a . or so, and they have alpha.
See you

that might be true.. I just figured that since redhat sold 6.1 for alpha that an image would be out there for it..

Thanks for you input..

if redhat sold redhat for alpha, then It would be on their site. They put the compelete redhat system on their site. But why take my word for it? Just e-mail then and see.

Redhat doesn't have a 6.1 iso image for the alpha becuase it isn't done yet. I've been waiting for one since the release of 6.1. A good place to get information for the alpha is www.alphalinux.org. On a somewhat related topic, you can get a copy of True64 from Compaq for $100 for non-commercial use. I recommend doing this since these libraries allow you to link to, and run, programs written for True64 under alpha linux.

http://www.cheapbytes.com/ usually has very inexpensive CDs of linux (including AlphaLinux) available shortly after release.
