    Thing is, I'm not entirely sure if you need an ADF to boot from a PCMCIA storage device. I don't have one that I could test this theory with. As I've said, the 9533 was capable of it (if I recall...

    Thanks for the info on the modding a standard drive!

  12. The Story of an eBay Purchase, AKA "Why we can't have nice things"

    So, I finally managed to find a higher end CRT for my PS/2 systems that isn't just one of the usual consumer grade 8512 / 13s and the seller decided to pack it like an absolute lemming. Seriously,...
  13. Yeah, international shipping is already...

    Yeah, international shipping is already expensive, so shipping rates for a CRT would probably be insane. Plus I doubt it would arrive in one piece unless it still has the original packaging.

    By...

    By the way, does anyone know what the cable I need to stick the original ESDI drive back in this machine looks like? I refuse to use a common lemming IDE drive with my exceptional PS/2 system :lol:
