That'll be a problem, since step 5 of adding a machine says:

5. Run the "ioscan -F" utility on the PA-RISC machine with the command
   /usr/sbin/ioscan -F. The results may take a few moments to appear. Copy
   and paste the results (which will be a fair amount of data) into the
   "IOScan Output" field below. The IOScan output must be from HP-UX
   version 10 or later.

And Matthew has 9.03. I have the same problem with a 730 I've got: I'd add it to
the db, but it's not at 10 yet. (Purely a time issue: I've got the upgrade CDs,
but apparently I can't do a clean wipe/install since my 730 won't boot from
the CD)
