1. Where is my serial? 

AFAIR, the 712/60 has no console/keyboard -> serial option
(unlike the 715/50 and 33's)

So you won't see anything until you are booting the kernel
and it begins to write to the serial console.

2. If your 712/60 has a floppy drive then you can use the 
   woody boot floppies for HPPA. Again you will need to get
   into the boot console with a monitor to _see_ if the machine
   is happy and recognizing your boot floppy.

3. Need to get access to boot console, from there you hit escape
   and type lan_addr (my memory is bad... do not trust ;)

Kenneth's email has a good link! ;)
So I'll reiterate:
