Not in my experience. I have a couple of HDS terminals. They are inert.
The system that used to feed them (via tftp) was culled for free space about
two weeks before I inquired. :-( We abandoned some NCR X-terms at work
because we didn't want to bother to set them up under Solaris (from an
ancient AT&T StarServer). In both cases, the ROMs only knew enough to
load an image from a LAT server or something similar.

If anyone has an old HDS image lying around, I'd love to test out my terminal.
