Nope... the Apollo DN series workstations are pre-HP Apollo systems (before
HP bought out Apollo Computer) and are 68K based systems. While they are
pretty majorly different, the Apollo DN's are similar in CPU/speed to the HP
300/400 series systems.
The HP 700 series systems are PA-RISC based systems... and entirely different
beast. There currently is an effort going on to port to the HP700's, check
the "port-hp700" mailing list... and OpenBSD is working on a port. Not sure
how far either has gotten at this point, but I'm pretty sure they are not
what anyone would consider a fully functional "port".
