I've borrowed an HP 9000/380 from a friend, along with a 9122D floppy
drive, but no software. It has an A1416A Color VRX DIO-II "Kathmandu"
video interface, but I'm hoping that I can just use the serial port as
a console. Does the DE9 serial console use the IBM pinout? Do I have
to pull the A1416A to get it to use the serial port as the console?

Is there any software that can be booted on it from the floppy, such
as perhaps non-HP-UX BASIC?
