Turnip is the 715/100XC. Has 1MB I/D cache vs the 128KB or 256KB that
the regular 715/100. Alex is getting a 715/100 to test with and
he can then tell you if it has ASP or LASI ( I think the latter but don't
know for sure).

I am a new kid on the HP block. I am running Linux on Alpha, Intel and
Sparc at present and have just gotten a used HP 9000 715/33 machine.

I noticed you are working on a native port and I can only applaud this.

Yet I have some remarks after studying the webpages on:

 1.	The Title on the page does not make it clear we are talking about
	the HPPA/Linux Porting Project. As the tekst is: The Puffin Group

	I would suggest someone merges these two tekst so everyone can
	recognize the page in their bookmarks file.

 2.	There is a small note about a first bootloader but the bootloader
	itself is not noted anywhere I could find it.

	It would be nice if I could give it a try.

My hopes for the long term are on this project as the 715/33 is not
supported by MkLinux. I understand it will be a while before it will be
anywhere near Beta quality.

I can't help with programming. But I can help with testing and documenting
if needed.
