    9: about="""
   10: NetBSD/hp300 is the port of NetBSD to Hewlett-Packard 9000 Series 300 and 400
   11: workstations. It runs on almost all workstations from this generation. Series
   12: 700 and 800 workstations are not currently supported, but work is underway on
   13: [[NetBSD/hppa|hp700]].
   14: 
   15: NetBSD/hp300 is based on work done by David P. Davis at the University of
   16: California, Berkeley and the Systems Programming Group at the University of Utah
   17: Department of Computer Science, beginning in the mid-80's. It was imported into
   18: the NetBSD source tree on May 13, 1993. Special thanks are extended to David and
   19: the Systems Programming Group for their work. Without it, the port would not
   20: exist.

   22: [[hp300 FAQ|hp300faq]]
   23: """
   24: supported_hardware="""
   25: All systems with a FPU are supported in NetBSD/hp300 (this excludes the 310 and
   26: 332). Systems marked with a "*" do not support the built-in framebuffer. You
   27: will need to [[set up a serial console|hp300faq#serial400]] on these
   28: machines.
   29: 
   30: The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/hp300 system requires 4M of RAM and about
   31: 40M of disk space. For a full installation (including source and X11), at least
   32: 8M of RAM and 200M of disk space are recommended. 
   33: 
   34: ###Supported Systems

   37: * 340
   38: * 350

   51: 'note'
   52:   > Series 400 machines must be configured in [["HP-UX Compatible Boot Mode".
   53:   > Follow these instructions|hp300faq#domaintohpux]] in the FAQ.
   54: 
   55: Some specific configurations of the above models don't support a local console.
   56: The 425e (and some rare 4XXt and 4XXdl machines) have their graphics device on
   57: the SGC bus, which is currently unsupported. Also, to use local console on a
   58: Series 400 workstation, you must currently use a HP-HIL keyboard/mouse (instead
   59: of Domain keyboard/mouse). 
   60:

  201:     362, 98705, or 98702 console)
  202:   * is very slow when connecting to some linux nfs servers, due to mismatched
  203:     block size. See fix in the Diskless HOW-TO
  204: * SYS_INST (installer) problems:
  205:   * Doesn't do error checking on disklabel entries
  206:   * very slow nfs transfers of miniroot (particularly from linux)
