I'm not an expert on the F series, but as I understand it I think the above
options are standard on the F? But anyways, that's pretty much loaded with
everything I've heard of.

Sweet... I have a couple sets of that firmware too. Means you can run
RTE-6/VM. I'm gonna have to pull out those manuals some day :) But then,
I've never been a huge fan of RTE from what I saw of it. I like something
more "general purpose". HP-IPL/OS looks promising. Or maybe I'll play around
and write something new, perhaps modled after primos. Great catch in any
case Joe.
