Could you use a pull or replacement mobo ? I notice there are some
Alphastation mobos on ebay for @50 bucks if you are interested and not
averse to fleabay :-) There isn't as much specifically for the 200, but I
see them come and go all the time.
Also, I still deal with a lot of business clients running alphas and
Tru64. There is a guy in Thornton, Colorado who I get quite a few dead,
spare, and orphaned alphas from. It's an electronics supply type business.
I'll see him this weekend and I can ask him if he's got any spares or dead
mobos he could fork over.
