An update

I acquired another 9000/382 with a hard drive. It booting into VUE and
eventually found out it is running HP-UX 9.10, As usual no root password.

I tried the <ctrl>-\ "hack" while a fsck was taking place and on the 2nd
try it dropped me into single user mode. From there the rest was easy


Looks like a clean install of 9.10 with nothing else.

I'll do a dump of the drive and post the image when I get a chance, lots of
other projects going on.

Now to come up to speed on HP-UX and get it on the network.

Thanks to Frank Slootweg via comp.sys.hp.hpux for the keyboard characters
to try.
