My 380 has an A1416A Kathmandu (a.k.a. Color VRX) (1280x1024 _at_ 60 hz, 8
bits, DIO-II). It has 3 BNC sync on green output, you'll need either an
adapter to a VGA monitor or a monitor with 3 BNC.

Any null-modem cable to a peasea set to 9600,8N1 should work. Note,
however, that the serial console (vs the graphics head/HIL keyboard) is
selected by a firmware command. The commands can be entered blindly without
a monitor attached, but a HP-HIL keyboard *MUST* be used if it is not set to
a serial console already.

You can find some more info on the page for the hp300 port of NetBSD,
http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/hp300, and Jim Conrad may have some parts
avaliable, you can find his original post in the classiccmp archives,
