Hi Mike;

You probably don't need it. These tapes would be useful for
the machines made by Apollo before it was bought by HP, at least
for the non-68040 based. These had model names such as DN3000,
DN3500 and DN4000, and ran Apollo's version of Unix, called
Domain OS. Pretty decent. The machines you have were made by HP
after it acquired Apollo; the first ones to bear the HP/Apollo name
were the 68030/40 series 400 machines, which ran HPUX. For the
400t you might want to look into netBSD, as the last version of
HPUX that runs in 68K-based machines is 9.1 (I think) and is not
y2k compliant. The series 700 machines have PA RISC cpus and
should run HPUX 10.20 .
