I don't know. Is there a way to discover it without disassembling the
notebook? Unfortunately, I can't get a manual, www.digital.com redirects
me to www.hp.com, which doesn't seem to care about such old products...
It may be interesting that in 1.6.2 it prints:
pcic0 at isa0 port 0x3e0-0x3e1 iomem 0xd0000-0xdffff irq
pcic0: controller 0 (Cirrus PD6710) has sockets A and B
pcic0: controller 1 (Intel 82365SL Revision 1) has no sockets
Don't know if this helps.

Ah, OK. Thanks for your reply.
