    The goal is mostly to simulate a fast 486 environment until I can find a 486 system or motherboard I can afford.

    The mainboard I had at the time came from CompUSA. I had a choice between getting a...

    It sounds like a 75Mz or 90Mz would qualify as a fast 486, then; perhaps like the the 5x86 133Mz that RadRacer203 mentioned...

    Thanks for the link.

    It's been a long time since I studied Pentiums in detail. Would L2 cache be the motherboard cache in the older systems?

    fast 486 vs. older Pentium

    Still don't have a working 486 system in my collection, and have noticed that 486 motherboards on eBay have become ridiculously high-priced; I'm guessing because of the retro gaming craze. Apparently...

    Up to PIII sounds reasonable to me.There's a lot of socket 370 systems with 5-pin DIN keyboard connectors out there, with PIII cpus in them.

    In certain ways I preferred Fido-net. The star topology made it easy to lock out trolls from the local net. It's amazing what you could accomplish on a BBS without a GUI. About the time I got out of...

    Just to be clear. the Gotek with flashfloppy supports the .img format, yes? That seems the most popular format I've run into so far on the web.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, but what are the final auction-winning prices? A lot of those units never sell and are put up for a new auction automatically.

    I remember a lot of 640Kb ram 286 systems back then. Memory was still very expensive and 640K was more than enough, right?

    Agreed, especially considering the larger disk volume capability. IBM PC-DOS 2000 sounds interesting. How much memory on 8088/8086/286 systems does it consume?

    I see. Thanks. I have a 286 and a 386, but both use the same passive backplane, with the cpu & memory on a card. The 386 only has 512K on it, was hoping to expand that. Looks like a separate card...

    Just encountered this thread. How did you get 8Mb of ram on that system? Expansion card? If so I expect it's proprietary to Zenith.

    For a while I had a MAG Innovison 17" monitor. Very nice CRT.

    If someone is local to the seller, they should get it.

    I use the 64-bit version under Windows 7 over here. The only criticism I have is that certain images and/or film clips don't display properly.

    Keyboard woes, just for laughs.

    My daily driver, like most modern systems, only has 1 ps/2 port on it. Since I never liked the included keyboard (flat keys, feels like a laptop keyboard, rearranged cursor keys) I used an old IBM...
