That would be a fun and worthwhile project; I wish I had more
information about the MX-30 RAM and how it's different. Infotek
basically replaced every HP component (except the backplane) with the
MX-30, so it could be radically different than the original.
The HP Museum has some pretty good pictures, see here:
http://www.hpmuseum.net/exhibit.php?hwimg=1060. If you need something
more detailed, let me know and I can run them through my scanner (not
the feeder portion).
