Can LINUX can run on an ALPHA processor?

Can LINUX can run on an ALPHA processor? If so, what versions?
There is a Debian Linux for the Alpha processor. Commercial vendors do not provide current Linux distributions for the DEC Alpha CPU. Suggest you check the Debian home page at http://www.debian.org for details and availability.
