For the sake of discussion, and preservation.... anyone at Compaq have any
spare hardware manuals that they could make available or add to what already
exists, online here and there? Hardware manuals are always what I never
seem to be able to find. Collectively, we should gather the info up,
before it becomes vaporware unobtainium.
