Re: HP 9000 Series 332 support. Hardware request.

Hello all.

I was the author of one of the olde posts...

I remember that back then, I finally managed to get *some* NetBSD
running on the HP 9000/318 - limited to built in 4 MB memory, no local
disk drive, swap over 10 MBit/sec Ethernet, console via serial port, no
graphics monitor available.

Even X11-Clients would work on the machine - although swapping would
take very long.

Not all kernels would work however; I remember I had to try quite a bit.
I should have archived the netboot-setup and my logs from back then, so
I might be able to look up details if required.

Kind regards, Joerg
