Are you sure this is a laptop?

I couldn't find anything useful on Google about an HP 5270, whether notebook
or not, whether Linux or not.  Maybe they only made 4 of it.  I did get lots
of hits on phone numbers with this suffix, and a Hitachi Visionbook model.

Either it is incredibly new (but then. why couldn't I find it at HP's own
site) or old and didn't sell well *at all*.

If you already have it, you can boot into rescue mode, read us the output
of lspci, and we can give it our best shot.

If you don't already have it, and don't have an opportunity to get chipset
data about it, I recommend getting something else... unless part of the 
fun for you is figuring out very strange hardware.
