I am samewhat confused what firmware version I have, the 
machine writes:
Processor revision 2.2
BootRom Version 1.5

The latest firmware for 712/60 that I have found is 2.3. So I am 
not sure if I need update (the instruction says that I should not 
upgrade from 2.2). Assuming that firmware=BootRom I should. 
However the instruction says to boot from a tape. I do not have 
a HP-compatible tape drive. Can I use a CD or preferably a hard drive?
