Peter Serwe tell me that Blade Switch for HP are actually Nortel 
(formerly Alteon products) OEM'd to HP.

They works with alteon mode doesn't need any changes to code or devices. 
So problem is solved and I'm happy.

I think that is good idea add description to alteon mode that they works 
with HP Blade Switches too.

Best regards, Olli Janatuinen
