Something must be confusing you. I've *never* seen a disk have the WP
(write protect) jumper set *and* be able to install HPUX on it.
WP jumper is the only way I know a SCSI disk can be Read-Only
across reboot's.

That must predate SCSI.
HP has sold enough unix boxes with other mass storage (eg FL, HPIB).
