No, but it's like my 715, so I have 'some clue'

It's called HPIL I think .. HP Interface loop. You can find these on eBay
of from collectors that have excess stock :).

NetBSD, Linux, and HP-UX should all work.

It uses narrorow scsi-2, so that shouldn't be an issue, except for booting
perhaps. I know some Sun systems have bugs that prevent booting off a
partition past the 1G or 2G mark on the drive, there may be a similar
thing here.

Memory is a bit funky if I remember correctly, not 'standard' SIMMS.

There's some more info on HP's PA-RISC systems over here:
