Can't be done. HP300 are Motorola MC68K-family based UNIX workstations and you can't run machine software on PC-based hardware.

Thanks for your post Deni. As far as I know, HP300 software written in HP BASIC, it communicates with SMT machine over HPIB. We can use PCIHPIB interface card and port software to x86. SMT software is over 5000 strings in HP BASIC, most of them is a implementation of User Interface. I able to list program on HP , but can't view on PC. Maybe someone have such files or another usefull information

HP300 used a file format called LIF (for floppies). If you can copy the software to the floppy, there's HP utlitity for reading LIF disks on the PC. For details look here http://www.home.agilent.com/upload/cmc_upload/All/5306OSKR-MXD-5601-040163.pdf
