Re: BP6 back in action as a backup NAS

Um, it won't turn back on when power is restored which is something I didn't expect. The BIOS option on power restore set to = ON. I'm running the RV BIOS with HPT. If it's not BIOS, it's the PSU, or something I can't fix. Otherwise it's working great. I rsync 2G of data to it, no errors, no dramas.

Re: BP6 and OS/2

What a nightmare OS/2 is to install. The memories are flooding back.
I've resorted to eComStation 2.0.
Runs nice with SMP kernel. ECS is a world away from warp 4. I'm even slightly impressed.

BP6 and OS/2

Hi die hard bp6 fans! My machine still sits close by at all times, I fire it up for fun sometimes. More as it was the anniversary of OS/2 recently I have been somewhat tempted to load it on my bp6 for fun. I can't remember ever loading it on this machine so am wondering if any drivers work. We shall...
