No, I doubt if you’ll need 900 megs for an OS/2 install.

I just ran the numbers on my OS/2 partition and with
Java, Swing, MPTS, TCPIP , FP13 it takes between
100 to 200 megs.

I can remember installing Warp 4 on a 200 megged
partition when it was ‘new’ and believe it took about
95 megs for a full install at the time.

The figure above is for OS/2 only.  All of my applications
and other files are spread out on other partitions, including
my swap file.  (SS/2 along takes up 303,566,943).

You may wish to add a second hard drive.  I suggest
an IBM IDE with at least 10gig.  You never think you’ll
need it but even with 20gig I find I could always use
more space!

Dell Inspiron 7000 PCMCIA/Video

I’ve seen references to people getting this working but I’m not having
much luck.  I’ve got WARP V4 and am trying to get a 3COM 3cce589et
Ethernet card to work in the PCMCIA slot.

The only OS/2 driver that I can get to load (not get an error) is
IBM2SS04.SYS.  However, running the Plug ‘N Play utility only gets me a
quick popup saying "No PCMCIA Slots".

I haven’t addressed the Video yet but that’s probably no picnic either.

Any and all suggestions appreciated.

No success with 3COM 3C589D and Cable modem

Hi,

I’ve been having problems getting my Thinkpad 390E connected to my ISP through a
cable modem and a 3Com 3C589D PCMCIA card.

I know it’s not the hardware, since I can connect to another machine using NetBIOS.
Also, the PC card driver gets loaded OK and the PCCard Director application indicates
that the card is recognized, ready and that there are no conflicts.

My ISP uses a DHCP server, but my machine just doesn’t connect, although everything
seems to be installed and configured correctly.

I’ve tried everything I can think of, and I’m out of ideas. I guess what I’m looking for here
is someone who could give my a rundown of things to check. Or a way to trace what is
wrong.

Any help would be appreciated,

Post Script Printing (or mis-printing) ???

        I am having a problem printing using PScript Drivers — including the
one just released in April and also os2sa_en.exe — both of which seem
to be based on the same thing.  I use overlapping frames in my
letterhead template.  Seems to cause trouble with Post Script —
slightly different trouble with different printers.  Nothing is 100%.
Ideas? Recommendations? etc.

OS2 doesn't like my new processor

Hello
I have a system with a K6 233 and 64 M ram. I’m using Boot Manager with
Win 95, OS/2 Warp 3, and Linux (Redhat 6.2). Everything works fine. I
recently tried installing a K6-2 300.
Win95 has no problems with the new processor. OS/2 and Linux will not
boot. I get the text screen with the white square and OS/2, then nothing.
It just sits there. I set the processor to the same clock speed as the
233, no luck. Putting the K6 233 back fixes things. Any ideas on how to
get the K6-2 to work?

Need Help!-Warp 4 installation woes

I recently changed motherboards from a Tyan 1590 to a s1598. I wanted to
have a clean install of OS/2. I used my Warp updated disks, but when I
got through install disk 1, the floppy LED is blinking with or without
any floppy inserted, and when I insert disk 2, there shows up 2 pages of
some kind of error in CONFIG.SYS and then everything stops with an error
message about that OS/2 can’t read a disk/floppy. I used the CDINST file
from the CD to make new installation disks, but the same thing happened.
Anyone encountered this before?
Thanks in advance.

WARP4 install problem on Notebook

Hi

My problem is:

I have a notebook ( Compaq armada V300 ) where WIN98 is on a 2.2 GB
partition ( type 0C ).
I want to install warp4 on a 1 MB partition.
But when I come to the FDISK part where I will chose/create the
partition I get a message:

"Partition on drive 1 is proberbly corruptet"

And I can not do anything than delete a partition, all other function
are disablet.
When I try the same with a WARP4.5 ( WseB ) it works fine.

I have tried:

To use DANIS506.ADD instead of IBM1S506.ADD

Got the newest IDEDASD.EXE from IBM

To use the parameter /GEO: on the driver IBM1S506.ADD

To make the bootmanager and the 1GB partition with the WARP 4.5 LVM prg,
it can be done but I can not install with WARP4.

The disk is translatet as :

556 cyl, 240 heads, 63 sectors

Any idea ?

APM 1.1 —>1.2?

Hi!

It seems that I use APM 1.1. However, Smartbar suggests that I should
upgrade to APM 1.2, in order to use their "suspend"-feature. Does anyone
know where ver. 1.2 of APM (apm.sys, I suppose) can be found?

Thanks,

OS/2 Warp Goldmine Book

Good Morning!

I am looking for a copy of OS/2 Warp Goldmine by Carole Patton.  I
ordered a copy from Barnes & Noble, but after 4 months they said they
were unable to get it and cancelled the order.  Anyone have a copy for
sale or know where I can obtain a copy?

I am looking for a good, comprehensive, readable Warp 4 book.
Suggestions anyone (besides Goldmine)?

                                                 Thanks –

                                                 Ric Schecter
