No. You are looking for the official HP *supported* version of parisc-linux.
(Which unfortunately doesn't exist)

Some *drivers* that I know work:
o tulip ("DEC" 100bt)
o eepro100 (Intel 100BT)
o sym53c8xx_2 (parallel SCSI LSI 53c8xx, 53c1010)
o acenic (Tigon2 1000SX)
o tg3 (tigon3 1000bt and 1000SX)
o cpqfc (but only with Agilent Tachlite 51xx series)
o stifb/sticon (most older HP gfx cards up to PCI Vis-EG)
o serial (under Dino, LASI, suckyio)

And how well particular drivers works depends alot on which kernel
version one tries. 2.4.19 seems to be pretty good overall.
Basic rule is to just try *something* and report problems on this list.

ESIEE maintains a "this worked for me" webpage.
Links to ESIEE are on www.parisc-linux.org.

I think so. 64-bit is used mostly on A500 - so strictly PCI
though folks can run it on both older and newer generations of
C-class machines.
