My name is Jeff Thompson and I am a graduate student in physics at the 
University of Washington.  My research group recently came into 
possession of a couple of hp9000/300 series computers from a defunct 
research lab.  Unfortunately, before sending us the machines, they 
completely erased the disks.

Having no operating system seriously limits the usefulness of these 
machines and so we thought we would install netBSD.

I was hoping there might be someone on this list that could suggest a 
course of action.  The system that we have set up has a 68040 and 109 
megs of ram.  There seems to be a ton of hard drive space and a CDROM 
drive. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
