The L-class servers, and anything marketed as RP* are PA-RISC
2.0 systems.  As I understand, currently NetBSD/hp700 only
supports PA-RISC 1.0 and PA-RISC 1.1 systems. (maybe PA2.0/32,
but the L's and RP*'s are PA2.0/64.)

You're probably best off with HP-UX 11.23/PA or HP-UX 11.31. 

You might see if OpenBSD has made any progress with PA2.0, but I
don't recall seeing any.
