Probably HPUX 9.08; if there ever was 3.08 that would have
been ancient and certainly not for PA RISC. Now, the 725's
have PARISC 7000 cpus; they won't be supported by the
PA-RISC Linux port when it is available. But they will run
HPUX 9 - 10.2. The 715's are actually newer, and they
should run HPUX 9-11 and Linux; I think they are PA-RISC 7200?
The 735/99 is PA-RISC 7100 (the minimum for Linux) and the
735/125 is PA-RISC 7150 . This is from memory so I could
be wrong.

Oh, and before I forget: there is NextStep for these machines
as well.

They are all good machines in any event. If you ever come across
a 735/125 (or 99) grab them; they have stereo audio and are
twice as fast.
