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 I 
then hit an incompatibility between that patch and the zx1 support, but 
that appears to be fixed in 
So I'd try the applying the acpi patch unless someone else has better 

Good luck,

John Byrne
