If you have a choice, get the "version 2.02" (round white sticker on
spine). It has substantial updates and a few corrections from the
original, and contains some accessory boards that weren't around for the
first edition

In addition to no longer having schematics, the PS/2 manuals also no
longer have source code for the BIOS! They do have fairly nice detail for
calling BIOS routines (contained in the opening comments for each section
in the source), but it's just not the same as having the full source.
