I have used the net-install ISO (4.0).
The network is instable, so wget to a known address is often stalled.
This I have tested (Alt-F2) because all mirrors are not accessible for
the installer. A ping from an other PC to this workstation shows
at least 50% lost.
Have rebooted, the basic system shows the same problems, ethtool
installed using a CD-RW (downloaded from
This tool is not able to get data from eth0. I think the hardware is
configured, the switch shows:
  Port Mode: 100 FD, Flow Control: Disabled

IMO on HP-UX it must be configured to use 100 FD. Because ethtool
is not able to get the current values of the card I have no idea
how to solve this problem. Maybe it will work with a CD-Install,
but 22 CD are really to many. Is there any description, which are
really necessary for an simple apache server system with XFCE as

I have tried to install Debian 4.0 on a second B2000 with the
same hardware. All works as expected (no X11 because unsupported
graphic card). Only the installer was not able to read what it
want from the debian FTP mirrors. Wget from the second terminal
was able to contact this server an read from other. Maybe the
mirrors not filled for 4.0 hppa?

An reinstall of HP-UX on the other B2000 shows the same errors
as with Linux. The box was at least 6 months without power.
Maybe it is now scrap.

Sorry, but because it was working before it was put in the store,
an hardware bug was for me not the first idea.
