On my HP-UX 10.20 machine the path is /usr/lib/sched.models

Nor the "internal" project names...most people I've worked
have no clue what's in an F20 or I60 (and I don't either).
One of those gaps between marketing and developement.

Other HP folks:
1) Difference between 7100 and 7100LC the mainly integration of GSC interface?
(ignore clock speed differences)
2) Is PCXL really 7100 *and* 7100LC?

I see T500 used 7100s and I'm certain no GSC bus was present...
