never having seen an 'e', I'm not sure whether they had an apollo keyboard
connector or not... I don't remember Domain/OS specifically supporting
the 'e' or not..
The issue with the apollo keyboard is still an issue since we can't find
the UART in I/O space that controls that connector on all 4xx's...
I can't remember where we stood on it but didn't someone suggest that
4xx's running HPUX had 3 uarts wired up to the serial connector on the
back? I remember that under Domain/OS there was only 1 serial port
available although I heard rumor that there were actually 2... If
it's the case that there were 3 ports under hpux and 2 under Domain/OS,
then I guess the answer is obvious... But looking on my 400s motherboard,
I see only a single 16550AN... So, I'm confused...
