Holey-Macaroni! I *have* a HP64000 w/a tape drive, but no means to boot the
sucker... (it booted off of another HP64000 thru it's own network) and it
has the 6800 emulation board (amongst other things) in it.

Someday I hope to have the machine fully working... If those tapes ever
need a home, keep me in mind!
