    No problem. There are a number of people on this list that have IPCs and the SW. Besides the buyer might get lucky and find that it has the Software Engineering ROM in it. The SE ROM has a pretty complete HP-UX built into it. There's also a Technical BASIC ROM that has a MOL complete BASIC in it.
