This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I found plenty of manuals available from HP's main site, but the HP 9000 is a series of workstations... there were about 30 different versions. Have you got another part of the name to go on? For example, there's the: 405, 420t, 705, etc...
Yes, I have a part number for all server's pieces.
I have searched for these on Internet and the pages I have found simple tell me what kind of piece the number correspond.
Here are some codes:
But they don't seems be a workstation.
Thanks a lot and sorry for my bad english
If it looks like that last one, its just a workstation. HP made a series of workstations called the 9000 series. There were many different members of the 9000 series. We can figure out which one this is and try to get you a manual, or tackle what is wrong with it here. From what I found at HP, they have very few manuals in Italian, so even if we figure out the exact machine we're dealing with, the manual may be very difficult to read.
I can probably help a little better then a manual, I work in a library where no one speaks english very well so I am comfortable with trying to explain things very simply.
What is wrong with the machine? Does it boot? If it does boot, where does it error? If it does not boot, what does it do? Does the Power supply turn on, does the BIOS beep not happen?
The server is a rackmount.
I have a lot of rack, and the numbers I send you are the number of racks.
If there are manuals in english, they aren't a problem for me.
I've found aome manuals about using HP-UX on this machine.
My firs and bigger problem is how to mount racks! I've racks, I've cable connectors, ... I've all the pieces but I don't know how to assemble them!
