Be aware of CPU "endian-ness".  This is a concern in Intel to Sparc porting.  
Not sure about HP to Sparc.  Google on "endian" for more info.  It may only 
be a concern if you exchange binary information with other computers in units 
large than a byte (octet of bits).

Don't forget about patience and perseverence being needed also :-).
