I had no problem buying them. IIRC, I got them from the same
place I got my PC: the IBM sales office a block away from where
the first Fry's would eventually open. We financed our PC with
IBM finance, and bought the absolute minimum hardware/software from
IBM, and then bought floppy drives and more memory from some guy
selling out of his living room in San Jose :)
