Depends exactly which models from the 800 series.  Some of them are PA1.0
which no-one plans to support.  Some of them have proprietary IO busses
that no-one seems interested in working on.  Please have a look at
http://www.thepuffingroup.com/parisc/hw.html and see if your machine
is in the database.  Some of the machines have different names; you can
also look at http://www.thepuffingroup.com/parisc/hp9000_models.html
