I've tried to install both FreeBSD and OpenBSD but
I face problems with the BIOS. Indeed the machines
have Alpha BIOS instead SRM.
FreeBSD does not yet support booting from AlphaBIOS.
The FreeBSD Alpha team is working on a solution for this problem but until
they come up with something like MILO for you need to be using the SRM
firmware. I dont know if the 164LX has SRM available for it but you would
have to check DEC's site or the archives for that one.
