a) I think only the headers are required, but this might be wrong.
b) deb http://debian.seismo.ethz.ch sarge ethz_sed main non-free contrib
This site provides compiled versions for the latest Debian Sarge
kernel-images, unfortunately only for i386 machines. Well, maybe that
solves at least the half of your problems :-) For the rest (alpha): Take
a powerful machine, build a Debian package of the modules (with
make-kpkg modules-image) and then distribute this package onto all alpha
machines in the network.


Ashes to ashes and clay to clay,
if the enemy doesn't get you, your own folks may.
