Well, technically, the HP reference tells you how to convert your Cisco
default PVST over to MST to match the HP preference.

The handful of HP switches versus the stacks and stacks of production
Cisco requiring conversion to suit them was "intimidating" to say the
least :-)

Foundry/Brocade on the other hand do PVST (so they say, I haven't given
it a thorough lab test).
