Yes. Kelly Computer Systems made some for it, and I think a German memory company made some, too.
And you're right, ordinary old memory won't work.

As for getting HP-UX 10.20, I forgot how one can wander around in
twisty little passages all different... go to:
Click on those little "Section 1" and Section 2" links, and the "Sign one Software License
Agreement" link.

BTW, I had no fancy proof of purchase, nor any other HP provided paperwork.
I sent them the model and serial number off the back of the my HP 9000s. For
"proof of purchase" I did two things: (1) for one computer, sent a copy of
the surplus store receipt where I'd bought the thing (WeirdStuff Warehouse);
and (2) for the other computer, sent a letter stating I'd bought it used from
