I've been worrying that, if the internal architecture uses USB, then maybe nothing will work at all. Anyway, my fallback is my Toshiba 486/25 laptop. That ought to work.

    Pentium M: I expect to work but that is pushing the limits of OS/2 Warp. If possible, reduce the RAM to 64 MB which is the most OS/2 without patches can recognize. You will likely need a patch for a larger hard drive, see http://www.warpdoctor.org/lib/info/idehdd.html The system will only be running in 640x480 but https://ecsoft2.org/scitech-snap-graphics might supply a driver allowing for higher resolution.

    I'll add that with a reasonably modern-ish system, that getting stock Warp4 to work well takes a lot of patches.

    OK, thanks again for the suggestions. Looks like I'll probably be running my Warp in a virtual machine under Parallels on my Mac, rather than trying it out on a physical machine that will only present problems. I can control the RAM and HD size there to try to minimize my difficulties.

    Thanks,

    Good luck. I hope you can find a good guide to OS/2 under Parallels; OS/2 is somewhat tricky to install under Virtual Machine software.
