Here's how it is supposed to look like:

Scherm by Hp-fix, on Flickr

vaxbarn had pics of newer hp-ux version at http://vaxbarn.com/index.php/collection/18-m68/55-hp-integral-pc, but they are missing now.

I had forgotten about so many of the weird ways that companies tried to put a friendly face on UNIX.

This machine was one of the more creative ones.

But I really have to wonder, was HP really trying to sell this thing as say an HP-85/86 on rocket fuel?

The shell they've used (PAM) is apparently a port from HP 150 -- http://www.hpmuseum.net/pdf/ComputerNews_1985_Jan15_37pages_OCR.pdf p.15.

Service manual for that one is online (at http://www.hpmuseum.net/exhibit.php?hwdoc=43), but technical manual is not (but CHM has a copy -- http://www.computerhistory.org/collections/catalog/102650462).

Hooked up the floppy, but IPC doesn't yet boot from sector-level images on coho.org.

On-disk format is not documented; apparently, it uses 256-byte sectors on 77 data tracks, and (maybe) 128-byte sectors on 'privileged' track 79 (see http://www.coho.org/~pete/downloads/IPC/burst/Languages/IPC_C_Language_Preprocessor/include/sys/sony_sys.h).

ImageDisk images would be quite useful to clear this up.

The ipc utils source probably would help there as well.
