I don't think so, but we would like that.  I just use 'make config' in
the meantime.

No, your 735 is a 735, but no, it doesn't matter.

It's really neither, and no, it doesn't matter yet either.   We just
don't have enough IO support yet for it to matter.

If it has EISA slots, it probably has WAX, for which we have no docs. 
It likely has Lasi, but I'm not sure and I'd need an HP person to tell

You should grab ramdisk.bin from
ftp://puffin.external.hp.com/pub/parisc/binaries/ramdisks or similiar.
