So the Advanced Workstation product is shipping.  I ordered my zx6000 a
month ago from HP and last week they said that it was delayed, waiting
on the software.

Have any paying :-) customers received delivery on the RedHat specials
from hp ?

I get this list as a digest so I am sorry if this is redeundant.

I was in a similar state trying to boot 2.4.18 on a rx2600 with the 
RedHat config file from the Advanced Workstation kernel. I eventually 
succeeded by adding the latest ACPI patch from apci.sourceforge.net. I 
then hit an incompatibility between that patch and the zx1 support, but 
that appears to be fixed in 
2.4.19+linux-2.4.19-ia64-020821.diff+acpi-20020918-2.4.19-ia64-020821.di
ff. 
So I'd try the applying the acpi patch unless someone else has better 
advice.

Good luck,

John Byrne
