I found what I'm looking for!
They have the service manual and the interfacing manual on the HP Museum website (www.hpmuseum.net)!!!

None of the front panel buttons seem to respond so I'm not sure what do do next. If you happen to know where I can find the manual, or know how to operate one of these beasts, I'd appreciate any help you could provide!
