The 310 has no space for an internal disk unit.  It is possible to 
install HP-UX but it might depend on the amount of memory in the 
system.  There is diskette images for a version of HP-UX that runs on a 
310 at, If you 
need more memory I have a few 128K and 1MB cards as well as one 4MB card 
that are extras.    I also have a 332 system board that was designed as 
an upgrade to the 310.  It replaces the 310 system board and has a 16MHz 
68030 processor , 2MB of memory expandable to 8MB and a 68882 math
