	They are both pretty far from being a functional port.
OpenBSD is doing well, and booting to a nfs server on a 712 (and
other platforms).

	 I'm not as far along with the NetBSD work as I would like
(real life keeps intruding.)

	The Linux/parisc folks are also proceeding, but their
focus is on the more recent platforms (A's, C's, etc..)  This is
partially due to the fact that is what HP is giving them to
work on.. Supposibly, they are booting to a ramdisk or nfs
server on the A's..
