I'm willing to bet you could put most of those on a serial console server
(Xyplex or DECserver of some flavor), if you could live without a
graphics console.

Tony, I'm suprised that HP9000s (assuming you mean the PA-RISC ones)
aren't too new/custom/hard to reverse-engineer/fix for you. :) Or, are
you referring to the 68k-based HP machines?
