Currently the HP 300 code only supports the 340.  The code doesn't
appear to have any active maintainer at present.  I have a number of 300
series systems that are not supported and time permitting I would like
to get them supported.  The problem is I'm currently over-committed with
development on the m68k Mac port, my day job and parenting.  Once we get
a reasonably stable 2.4.x kernel on the Mac, I plan on working on the HP
300.  I do have some surplus hardware if anyone has the time and desire
to do some active development.  Also if anyone knows where I can locate
memory modules for the 340 it would be appreciated.  My 340 has only 4MB
and I'd like to at least have one additional 4MB module.  I could trade
a 360 SPU w/4MB parity RAM module (for total of 8 MB) or a System
Interface Card (HP-IB, HIL, SPKR, RS232, LAN, Clock and DMA) for memory
for the 340.  I also have a 318 which is missing the power supply.
