First, a quick gripe.

Desie, could you please edit your reply messages as to not include 100
lines of superfluous header?

Well, every single 16-64kb motherboard 5150's I've ever gotten (and I
think I have two) have a disk drive in them. I don't think its that big
of a deal to remove one if you want to make it "original". But as far as
all the original 5150's I've ever come across (a lot), every single one of
them have at least one disk drive, if not two disk drives, or one drive
and a hard drive. I don't think many people bought an IBM PC without
either buying an installed 5.25" drive with it or adding one shortly
