L3000 and N4004 backplane layouts ??

Can anyone point me to the backplane layout "pictures" for the L3000 and N4004?

There used to be a manual called something like "Hardware Reference Manual" for each model which showed diagrams of what cards were where, but I can't find it on the HP web site.

I wrote this down, once upon a time, but I don't think it's right:

L2000/L3000 has 12 slots.

0/10/0 12
0/12/0 11
0/8/0 10
0/9/0 9
0/3/0 8
0/1/0 7 (empty on L1000)
0/5/0 6 ...
0/4/0 5 ...
0/1/0 4 ...
0/4/2 3 ...
0/1/0 2 GSP LAN Console / Console
0/1/0 1 CoreI/O LAN / Thin SCSI

Note that I have 0/1/0 about 4 times. That can't be right, can it?

I suspect that they're marked on the back of the server, but the computer room is some ways from here.

'rp5430 and rp5470 I/O Block Diagram'

it's sideways, but It has a list of slots with the corresponding HW paths. On the L-class, slot 1 is the bottom slot.

for the N4000:
(second to last page of the PDF)
On the N4000 there are cards on both sides. The numbering starts at 1 on the bottom left, goes to 6 on the top left, then continues on the bottom right with 7, and 12 is the top right.

What are the chances...
