    The holes in the PCB are sized for a press fit with the header strips provided. This is so they don't fall out when you turn the board over to solder it. Every now and then, a board gets a little more solder in the through-holes than it should have, and the headers can be a bit difficult to insert. I just rock them back and forth. The "snap" of them going in is the slightly deformed tip of the pin making its way through (they get deformed from the pin-cutting process, when the headers are manufactured).

    Thanks, everything worked out fine in the end. In my case the "snap" in some cases really was the pins separating from the header. They stuck out longer than the others. I've attached a photo to my previous post. But no harm done, it all worked out okay. Thanks for creating the board!

    Hello,
    I will receive my xt-ide rev 4.1 card, which compact flash should I use? CF 4 GB at least apparently problem.
    I have an ibm 5155 with DOS 6.22.

    it is better to take a CF sandisk or transcend?
    for example this one?

    Thank you for your help.

    transcend 2GB is ok but sandisk 128MB or sandisk 512MB not work.

    Can't find the webpage with the dIp switch settings. I had it at one stage.

    EDIT: Someone beat me to it.
    Current favorites: IBM 5160 (EGA+Hercules+PGC, 8 floppy drives, XT-IDE), DCC D-116 (Nova 1200 clone), ASR 33 Teletype (now FULLY armed and operational! Mostly.)
    Wishlist: IBM 5161 (expansion chassis), Diablo 31/RK02/RK05 or equivalent, Data General Nova software, and the meaning of life.
