This appendix describes the differences between Red Hat Linux/Alpha and Red Hat Linux/Intel installations. While it provides a good overview of these differences, you will find it easier to read chapters 2, 3, and 6 in order. These chapters will refer you to the appropriate parts of this appendix at the appropriate time.
In addition, the Linux/Alpha homepage at
http://www.azstarnet.com/ axplinux/ contains a wealth of information for people considering Red Hat Linux/Alpha.
