Hello all, 
I've been following posts watching the port mature. 
 I d/led the .9.2 install.iso and it doesn't boot, I'm using a Toshiba
external cdrom from my SS10.
715/50 48 megs, 2x 540meg drives. HP Unix died on these drives after a
hardboot and no media to reinstall.

and then several neat rows of hex. 
 Could it be the drive isn't compatible or am I doing something else
