Re: Hardware requirements



Great.
Two questions come to my mind: 
- Does elks somehow make use of the "new" 80186 instructions? (just out
of intrest)
- For the PC-D the bios was contained on the boot floppy/disc. I wasn't
yet able to find docs that describe how to use that bios, or if its
necessary to be used.
