Does any one know whether Debian can be installed on HP Alpha ES 45 servers. I checked the Debian website. But there was no option to download Debian for alpha architecture. Or do you know any other Linux distribution that has a release for Alpha CPUs.

You may want to have a look at the Debian Alpha Port pages which suggest that the ES45 will run at least some versions. The installation manual is here and you can download the binaries from the Debian mirrors
