I just got two "new" HP425 machines. They have a video adaptor
that looks remarkably like a VGA connector, built-in on the
main logic board. The logic board is labeled "A1421".
The monitors are gorgeous RGB 19" (as viewed from DomainOS).
Unfortunately it's clear that the /dev/grf code does not
support this hardware. Console, and standalone
tools like boot, all fail to work on the RGB monitor. I essentially
can only use the machine as a network appliance, since I clobbered
DomainOS and installed NetBSD.
Is anyone already working on this hardware or am I starting from
