 If you decide to buy an old IBM PS/2 and need tech support you can get
 info from IBM's web site. I picked up a PS/2 Model 60 286 based pc
 last year (which I used as barter for a complete IBM 16-64K PC and
 Victor 9000 from a furniture dealer who wanted a word processor). The
 system wouldn't boot due to a spent cmos battery so after replacing
 the battery I found the reference (setup) diskette at IBM's web site,
 downloaded it to a 3 1/2" floppy and was done with it. Go to
 ibm.com/support and search under ps/2.
