I found my copy of the leaflet, and I think this may have come from my semantic misunderstanding. The leaflet says RISC OS is "4mb, small enough to fit on the computer's PCB, which makes it fast and efficient" or words to that effect; I interpreted this, perhaps wrongly, as meaning that Alpha had RISC OS on the motherboard, when it may simply have been referring to how RISC OS originated on native hardware...

ah well :)
