Not the hp310, I think; at least not the version of bootloader/secondary
loader and hpux that the hp310 might have supported.

hp310s are about the earliest 300 series models. They didn;t usually
have more than one or two megs of RAM, and I think they maxed out
at about 6MB. Thus, BASIC or other such systems were preferred.
