AS2100a is about the least well tested Alpha as far as FreeBSD is concerned.
Andrew (gallatin@) does not even want to be reminded of the work he did
to get 2100 and 2100a supported. It also made a difference if you had a EV4
or a EV5 CPU installed. At some time in the dim past it sort-of worked but
that was really it.
I'm afraid you are basically on your own trying to get it working. Noone
in the committer community that I know of still has a machine like this
The ones we had at work and which I used in the dim dark past to test my
release builds on have long ago been scrapped.
