BTW, if you're running 9.00 or later, on hardware that was released in '92
or later, you can use the model(1) command to get an expanded model
string.  For example:

  $ uname -m
  9000/829
  $ model
  9000/829/K400

Here are the mappings for older HP9000 Series 800 machines:

   Model number on the     String returned
   outside of the box      by uname -m
=============================================
        default ----------> 9000/800
        E25 --------------> 9000/806
        E35 --------------> 9000/816
        E45 --------------> 9000/826
        E55 --------------> 9000/856
        F10 --------------> 9000/807
        F20 --------------> 9000/817
        H20 --------------> 9000/827
        K400 -------------> 9000/829
        F30 --------------> 9000/837
        G30/H30 ----------> 9000/847
        I30 --------------> 9000/857
        G40/H40 ----------> 9000/867
        I40 --------------> 9000/877
        G50/H50 ----------> 9000/887
        I50 --------------> 9000/897
        G70/H70 ----------> 9000/887
        I70 --------------> 9000/897
        G60/H60 ----------> 9000/887
        I60 --------------> 9000/897
        T500 -------------> 9000/891

On earlier machines, "9000/800" was returned by "uname -m" when HP-UX
could not determine the model number of the machine.  This generally
indicated that the machine was not properly configured.

On more recent machines (As, Rs, Ls, Ns, etcx..), "uname -m" ALWAYS
returns "9000/800."  To ascertain the machine's model string you MUST
use the model command.
