Officially, FreeBSD supports distributions for the Intel i386 (i386), 
Intel Itanium 64 (ia64), AMD 64/Intel EMT64 (amd64), andd Sun Sparc64 
platforms. There is no (official) release of FreeBSD ported to the HP 
9000. That being said, I'd suggest if you must use the HP 9000 series 
PA-RISC architecture, to look to NetBSD. I've used NetBSD myself on 
someolder pa-risc boxen, but only for the sake of messing around to be 
honest. I'm not certain, but I believe OpenBSD has a port to the HP 
PA-RISC platform as well.
