available on 2 CDs. One corresponding to each of the DVDs.
So all the software is on two DVDs? (I realise that DVDs have quite a

Are there any good hobbyist machines for Itanium? I define good in this
context to mean cheap or free, capable of running the latest version of
VMS and all versions for a few years to come, not too big, not too loud,
not too power-hungry, at least as fast as an EV6 Alpha.
I'll be travelling to several countries in Europe in the next few
months. I'm glad to give any good hobbyist Itanium machines a good
home. I think I have all the other hardware I need, but I could use a
couple of BA353 expansion boxes ("pizza box") and small EV6 or faster
ALPHAs. LCD monitors which work with VMS would also be appreciated.
