No, they're *much* less customized than on most machines.

Indeed, one should be able to boot just about any PA-RISC
HP 3000 from a CSLT made from any other PA-RISC HP 3000 ...
although you might have know enough to get past radical
differences in I/O configuration (which is possible to do!) :)

That said, "CSLT" stands for "Customized System Load Tape" ...
so you might be getting software you (a) don't want;
and (b) didn't pay for.
