You know the P70 hardware manual is online at IBM at and the book is in HTML Bookmanager
format or downloadable PDF format as the Portabel Systems HMM Volume I. Very
handy and yes the P70 is a neat little unit. My wife starting tinkering on
mine and now I can't get it away from her, especially after the 486 upgrade
and Win95 OSR2 on a 160mb drive and 16mb ram. I just added an Etherlink MC
card and now the same woman that says she doesn't have need for a network is
tied to it and wreaking havoc!

=> Thanks to Wizard, I have aquired a keyboard for my P70
=> finally and gotten it functional. I had to swap out the floppy drive

=> it took to install OS/2 Warp Ver. 3 from floppies! I've not
=> installed either the Etherlink or SCSI card yet, but it's running
=> OS/2 on the original 120 meg HD, 8meg of RAM, and the 40mhz 486SXL2
=> CPU upgrade. Boot time was cut dramatically once I installed the
=> Evergreen cache software for the new CPU. All in all, a pretty nifty
=> little system.
