This is the one in the sort of peach-colored IBM binders with
slipcases, right? I had a copy of that a few years back (gave it to
an interested friend back east). While I had it I made some
observations. The manuals didn't mention hard^H^H^H^Hfixed disks at
all. They also seemed to indicate that diskettes held about 160KB
(i.e. no knowledge of double-sided disks). And it didn't want to boot
on anything I had access to except the Panasonic Business Partner in
the QA lab at work -- I'm not sure whether it objected to 80x86s for
x>=2, clock speeds > 4.77 MHz, or what.
