Got a HP 2648. Now what?

  What do you want to trade? :-) I can probably get rid of one of these.
One has a spotted screen but there's a third one out there that's apart and
I was already planning on grabbing it. Except for the one screen these
both look good and have a s&*(load of cards in them. Also got the keyboards
and they're both fine. However the capstans in the tape drives have all
melted (what else is new?)

  Do you know what option 007 and 032 are? Do you have a manual for them? I
couldn't find anything on Al's site.
