in  bionet.software.x-plor there has recently been some discussion as to
running xplor on linux. I dont know about denzo or O but the majority of
ccp4 programs will work on linux. The difficulty is still with xwin
programs. I have not heard of any specific problems with Alpha/linux
as opposed to PC/linux and I know people are running Alpha/Linux.

For more info on CCP4 on linux see the linux page off the main ccp4 page
at http://www.dl.ac.uk/CCP/CCP4/main.html
