There seem to be quite a few questions that get posted to this newsgroup 
regarding hp300 hardware.  I also find that I spend a fair bit of time 
answering general hp300 hardware questions on comp.sys.hp.hardware.

What I'd like to do is gather as much of this random info as possible and 
put it in one place, such as the hp300 port pages on the NetBSD WWW 

Snippets that I can think of off-hand:

	- features of the various hp300 models (I think Mike has posted
	  something like this in the past).
	- How to upgrade your 345/375 to a 68040 (HI DAVE and HERB!)
	- Pinouts of the hp300 dca and dcm boards (the db9, db25, and
	  RJ-whatever ports)
	- Listings of various chips used in the hp300 and where to get
	  documentation on them.  Anyone tried to get the MB87030 docs
	  from Fujitsu lately?  It's challenging!  :-)
	- Geometry of HP-IB disks (I have a list of several already)

If anyone would like to send any of this info to me (in text or html 
form), it would be greatly appreciated.  Hopefully, it will save us all 
some time in the future.
