I am new here, having recently purchased a nifty (used) HP Jornada 720.  
However, I recently spent about a month getting NetBSD 3.0 
up/running/configured on an NEC MobilePro 780 (hcpmips) and had begun 
the arduous task of compiling on the device itself, until I fried its 
monitor that is....

I am noticing that all the docs in the /hcparm/installation/ directory 
are missing.  I am referring to this directory:

It's just an empty directory.

Its analogue in the HPCMIPS tree 
contains not only the HPC bootloader (hpcboot.exe) but also a generic, 
compiled kernel (netbsd.gz) that boots on an hpcmips box directly into 
'sysinst' and therefore makes installation oh-so-possible.  Not to 
mention the lengthy, and really useful, install docs contained in its 

Does anyone know where these files are for hpcarm?   I've heard tell of 
a 'JSINSTALL.gz' file that does what the generic kernel posted to the 
HPCMIPS tree does:  Boot up and automatically run 'sysinst'.  It would 
be great if someone could email me a copy of this file or, better yet, 
just post it up in the 
directory (along with a compiled version of hpcboot.exe) so that 
everyone can get to it.

I am pretty excited at the prospect of getting NetBSD up and running on 
the Jornada 720, but without these files I am dead in the water.
