well, for the microchannel machines, there is the mca mafia
( and the ardent too of capitalism
(, plus, the other version that has some other
files; proud tool of capitalism (
proud is a earlier mirror of ardent and has a bunch of files that ardent
dropped for some reason. it's like they forked on the same path and just
run parallel, but not equal now as both have things the other doesn't.
There's DGMicro's MCA Linux site (,
Daniel Hamilton's PS/2 Files site (
which covers most ps/2's, Peter Childs' PSInfo Site
(, Karol Chlasta's
IBM PS/2 site (english and polish)
( and then, finally,
this Dutch site for PS/2 support that seems to be a mirror of MCA mafia
( - the site itself is mirrored at .

I hope this helps a bit.
