I have a PS/2 model 25 on the way. I'd love to find some Getting Started and diagnostic disk images. Thanks!

Do you have another floppy drive capable of making 720k floppies from images? If so, look at http://www.walshcomptech.com/selectpccbbs/

Thanks so much!

So I keep reading that you can format 720k floppies by covering up the hole on the disk and passing a couple of parameters to format / fdisk. And it looks like there are a few utilities out there that will write various images (http://freeextractor.sourceforge.net/diskwrite/).

Model 30 (8530) will also work if you can't find model 25 disks, but you don't need anything to use a dual drive system IIRC, right?
