: Worth a try then. But am I right in thinking that the AT doesn't
: implement all the 286 modes properly? I'm sure the XT286 doesn't. >> AT doesnt implement 286 models properly? i dont get it. AT=80286. now,
all 286 machines had a limitation about being able to switch from protected
mode to real mode and back to protected mode without major work and/or a
reboot. the 386 does this all smoothly under software control. it's also my
understanding the XT286 is just a regular old 5170 board in a 5160 case.
