It runs SPP-UX which theoretically is binary compatible with HP-UX, this
is bad news as that OS is pretty much unobtanium. It is a very very early
SPP machine, and it runs PA-RISC 7100 processors, I think that frame is
limited to a max of 8 processors, but the -2 seems to indicate it is a
dual 7100 machine.
