Here is some of my OS/2 stuff. I have more in a box out in the garage.

So fun to see this topic get more traffic. I am also in the process of building an OS/2 Warp Connect workstation using an IBM 5x86-100 which I think is an oddly perfect pairing 😀

Fascinating thread! I'm still trying to figure out which system I want to put my copy of IBM OS/2 Warp 3 Red Spine on - but I really want it to have networking and I can't seem to get MS Lan Manager 2.2c working on it. Preferably I'd like to have newer networking support so that it can join my Win2k3 domain. I also have a copy of OS/2 Warp 4 Blue Spine that I think I have a system for (Penium III 450MHz), but the project has been put on hold as I've been very busy with remodeling my basement to be my computer den and trying to get up-to-speed on coding in DOS & Windows 3.1x. Speaking of which, does anyone know if the Digital Mars C++ compiler can create OS/2 native applications? Or is a different compiler needed?

OS/2 v4 Server and Advance Server have updated network clients that will do DHCP and 32bit network stack. . OS/2 v3 Connects client doesn't.

So then I'll have to install my copy of IBM Communications Manager/2 for OS/2 Warp. Good to know. I think I'll be limited to peer-to-peer networks with that package and won't be able to take advantage of domain authentication. That's ok though, networking is better than sneakernet, using floppies, or rigging up compact flash devices IMHO.
