Yes. It works better now. I used the 0x12000.

Now I see following:
----------------------------------------------------------
ISL> hpux /stand/vmlinux

Boot
:disk (8/..........)/stand/vmlinux
397320 + 114688 + 66464 start 0x12000

The kernel has started...
You are running a 0Mhz PA-RISC-Machine with 0MB of RAM.
First free address was 0x00000000 (This is the base of the stack).
Stacksize = 0x00040000.
First free User-Memory starts now at address 0x00040000 and ends at
0x00090beb.
L
----------------------------------------------------------

I guess that it still tries to say something (Cursor was placed after "L"
on last line). The amount of memory and Mhz are also bit incorrect...

Ps. Axex: I have tried couple of times to mail you directly... Did you get
those emails?

Btw. Is there going to be anything about paric-linux in LinuxExpo (San
Jose 9-12 Aug) or in HP-World? Anyone going there?
