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

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

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

  200:     362, 98705, or 98702 console)
  201:   * is very slow when connecting to some linux nfs servers, due to mismatched
  202:     block size. See fix in the Diskless HOW-TO
  203: * SYS_INST (installer) problems:
  204:   * Doesn't do error checking on disklabel entries
  205:   * very slow nfs transfers of miniroot (particularly from linux)
  206:   * doesn't support streaming from ct devices (such as the 9145)

  208: 
  209: Items that already have support, but need to be rewritten.
