PCMCIA Cirrus Logic Chipset PD6832, modem not working

I have recently purchased an AST Ascentia P Series laptop for a great
price that precluded full research.

I have everything working under OS/2 except the modem card.

There are no drivers from AST for the subject chipset, but many other
laptops use it.  I installed those for the Ambra TS30A5 (because it was
first alphabetically).

The Plug and Play for PCMCIA recognizes the modem card, a USR Sportster
SP1336, just fine, but the status information in the Assigned Resources
window says:

<Staus>
  Error
(IRQ Error>
  4
<I/O Error>
  2E8 – 2Ef

I don’t know if this is a problem with the drivers, or a configuration
issue.

I have configured dual boot, and the modem is fine under Windows 95.

Please help!

fdisk from OS/2 2.1

Could anyone send me the fdisk.exe included in OS/2 2.1?

It’s ment to avoid the huge-partition-bug in the later versions, so that
-maybe!- I could be able to install WARP 4…

If someone knows a better solution, let it hear!

Problems using Selective Install

Hi!

    I open the Selective Install Window, and after a few minutes of disk
activity the system hangs. Hardware reset is the only recover procedure.

Any idea?

Many thanks in advance

os2 coexisting with win95

Please help!

I prefer Warp as an operating system. However, reality now forces me to
install Win95 too. Can somebody suggest a page on the web where to find
a list of instructions how to do this.

I have two machines:

First one: Has installed Boot manager with choices Warp (HPFS) and Dos
7.0 (FAT), both on C:, but hidden from each other. My idea is to install
Win95 together with Dos (os replacing it). Can this be done and in that
case how?

Second machine: This is a new one, comes with Win95 only preinstalled. I
want to install warp 4.0 together with Win95. Since this machine has no
other programs installed it is easy to erase Win95 and start from
scrach. How am I to do this.

Any help appreciated! prefferrably in a listed form or pointings to a
webplace where information can be found.

New years greetings from:

OS/2 & Secondary Master ….. NOT!!!!

I’m really getting sick of this.
WARP4 FP5.

I can’t use a secondary Master with OS/2. If I properly move the Primary
Slave to be the Secondary Master.. OS/2 DIES very early in the boot saying
it can’t operate a HD.

If I try to ADD a new 2.1 WD HD as a secondary master( already have a PM &
PSlave), autodetected properly as 2.1G & LBA by the ASUS TX97-E Award
bios, & I FDISK it from boot floppies.. The BIOS is ZAPPED and always
reports it as 528 meg. Disk is unuseable.

Making it a primary slave works fine.

What the Heck is going on here??????????? Can anyone help?

ALPS Printer Drivers…

Hello,

My brother just got a new printer for X-mas, an ALPS MD-2010 color printer
and we cannot find any drivers for OS/2, actually I can find no drivers at
all for any ALPS printer model :-(

If anyone knows of any drivers for ALPS printers, I(we) would appreciate
it very much…

Will another 16 meg help?

Im just wondering if adding another 16 megs of ram would be a
significant performance boost
for Warp 3.  My system is a Pentium 120, with 16 meg ram, and Id like to
eliminate some of
the swapping that goes on.  Ive tweaked config.sys with cnfginfo and I
still thing there is
a lot of disk activity for just opening and closing windows.  Id like to
eventually try Xwindows
for OS/2, and I remember that 16 megs was marginal for Xfree86 running
Linux.  Any info
appreciated.  TIA.

What to do to get a 24x CD-ROM to Work?

I just bought a Creative 24 Speed DCD-rom (Panasonic?) and I can’t get it to
work. I have an old P-90 with a PCI HD controller. OS/2 does not recognize it
at all. I have 2 HDs on one Channel and nothing on the other. I knoe that I
have to do something to my IMB1506.ADD but I don’t know what to do.

Could someone please help me get this to work.

Thanks.

SCSI Card with E6 Scanner-Won't Work!

I just bought a new E-6 scanner and I can’t get the AHA152X.ADD driver to see
the card. The message I get is the it can’t load it. I have tried every switch
reference in the help files and nothing has corrected it.

What I am I doing wrong or is the SCSI card defective?

THanks in advance.
