I have a HP9000 715/100XP thats giving me a puzzle trying to get "X" (11) to start. I'm trying to piece together a "Vue" installation on a machine that had "Desktop"...but it looks like the script "vuerc" stops when trying to start "X"...

Also looking for the best way to boot from another system's drive over ethernet...those machines "lan devices" are listed as bootable devices but won't boot. Basically I have an old HP9000 750/66 tower that has a corrupted /etc/passwd file...hpux hell. This makes it impossible to even boot to a single user mode. I don't know of any other way to selectively replace that file or edit that file with the options I have available booting to the "scsi.6.0 isl" level. I guess an option I will try is to build a system recovery tape from another system and boot from that tape, attempt to get to single user, and then attempt to mount the offending disk with the corrupted /etc/passwd file. I would like to use one of the other systems I have on the "lan" instead (I have a HP720, another PA7000 based system thats has virtually the same processor and unix configuration) . A convenience factor. What shows on the list of bootable devices is simply the "lan" device IP address. I need to figure out how to get one of the other systems drives....ie. instead of something like the scsi.6.0 entry on the problem systems list, a unique name for those drives on one of the other working systems on my little network, with a bootable image.

I wait your opinions on:
