    New England WTB Working Floppy drive for PS/2 55SX - IBM Part number 72X6068

    I need a working floppy drive for an IBM PS/2 Model 55SX, IBM part number 72X6068. Hoping to pay somewhat less than the high prices I have found on eBay. The one I am replacing is made by Mitsubishi, their part number MF355C-599MA, though I gather there are equivalent parts made by other...

    Victor 9k / Sirius 1 Software

    Hi Matt, We have the BIOS source code for DOS 1.25 and 2.11 for the Victor 9000. The disks are in Paul's uploads. (I think there were copies in the disks you got from me as well.) Yes, there are differences in the hardware for the 9000 and the Vicki, which is why they need different BIOS code...

    Dual floppy system with PlusPC installed. I have some concerns about the power supply on this system. After I took the first few pictures, there was a minor "smoke event" with a puff coming out the rear vent and a burned smell. The system stayed running. I turned it off, waited a bit and turned...
