You need to join one of the national HP user group organizations -- in the US
it's called Connect -- once you do that you can register on openVMS.org for
license PAKs.

In general, openVMS.org is a go-to place for all things VMS related.

matching monitor, mouse and keyboard, though I am only using a serial
connection while I learn about booting with MOP and play around with Open BSD
on it. I'm far enough through the OpenBSD install that I'm sure everything
will work.

SCSI drive will work.

that. (OK with me; I am sure I'll need help from time to time.) Are there
other options?
