K Class boxes and HPPA Linux
I've got a K570 I loaded it on. Not sure about the K460, but the K570 didn't
have a 16550 uart, so booting with serial console I had to use the
'console=ttyB0' option. My 100BaseT network interfaces didn't have any
drivers, however, which was a bit of a show stopper for me.
YMWDV (Your milage will definitely vary).
