We dropped some of the older HP NetSERVERs because of problems with memory and
the EISA bus that HP in germany could not rectify in 6 month's time...
The machines would not run Novell for a time longer than 1 hour, but DOS/Win
They would not install or boot OS/2 but SCO was fine.
They would not probe the EISA Cards with NETBSD, but linux managed to find the
1740 (but not the Ethernet cards).
So I think you have to have luck to get it running, though this experience was
some 16 Moths ago, or longer.
Tragbar ist, was nicht herunterfaellt.
