  While we're on the topic...I recently picked up an HP9000 model I70
(dual 96Mhz PA-RISC processors) and it's got some sort of funky
multi-serial-port card (16 ports) in it that terminates in a huge D-shell
connector. From what little info I've been able to find online, it
seems that the console I/O goes to one of the serial lines on that
board. Alas, I don't have any cables/breakout boxes/etc to connect to
that board. Can someone here tell me what I need to find to talk to
the console of this box? Even some pinouts of that big connector
might help. Thanks!
