Does anyone out there have a picture of the IBM xt-286 motherboard? If so could you post it? Thanks :p
I understand it uses 30 pin SIMMS and DIP ram.

The SIMMs can be a pair of any kind of 256x9 Kbit module (256KB+Parity), as long as it's faster than 150nS. However, 1MB modules won't work at all.

The onboard 128KB can actually be disabled by a jumper. This is porblably to maintain compability with cards which assumes the on-board memory-configuration of the PC/AT.
