It's interesting you mentioned the IBM PC TRM - is that the same thing as
the so-called "purple book" I've read so much about (mostly in long-since
deceased webpages Google have cached)? I'm trying to track down a copy of
the original IBM PC Technical Reference and any updates to it (3.5" drive
support in the BIOS, etc). Anyone got a copy they want to sell?
