Re: IA64 zx2000 boot problems

I don't know how similar zx2000 and c8000 are, but I know for sure
that it doesn't matter if recent HP-UX don't work on zx2000, since HP
drop HP-UX support on zx2000/zx6000 in September 1, 2004 with May 2005
release being the latest supported version [1]. So, not having IDE
support in recent HP-UX doesn't mean that zx2000 has SCSI HDD ;-)

And from zx2000 specs [2], it comes standard with ATA/100 controller,
Ultra160 SCSI controller being an option. So I bet that most zx2000
out there have IDE HDD.
