Wouldn't it be easier to just get the PDP-11 emulator from 
gatekeeper.dec.com and compile it for HP-UX or Linux on the 712?  I've 
compiled it on Solaris 8, Linux, and Mac OS X, so it should compile just 
fine under HP-UX.

Also, as far as I am aware ( and keep in mind, I am an HP-UX system 
admin. ) HP-UX has only ever been System V. You can run HP-UX, Linux, or 
NetBSD on a HP-9000/{800,700}.

They seem to have learned the habit of cowering before authority even
when not actually threatened.  How very nice for authority.  I decided 
to learn this particular lesson.
