Got delayed for over a day by the airline on Friday. Didn't make it back home until 1am Sunday morning. Not a happy camper

The 4.3g barracuda drive for the HP712/80 turned up so I spent some time installing it (exacto knife to the hard drive supports). Fired up hpux, it found the extra drive no trouble at all.

So, onto the installation of hppa-linux 0.9. No matter what I did, the machine would not boot from the cd. Remembering deep back into the subconscious, I seem to remember that the cd-rom drive has to have a certain block size to boot the machine. So onto ebay we go, found an old 4x toshiba external for $12.50 that should do the trick. Hopefully this will be delivered this week so I can try to get this up and running next weekend.

Received comments back from Anton for the ppc changes to ibmtr, just a small change and then it looks good. I really need to get an older powerbook so that I can test all this stuff, unfortunately only the later models support cardbus as well, and they are still too expensive.
