      A great place to ask about PS/2 problems is the Usenet group

      A list of PS/2 error codes can be found at
      http://www.computercraft.com/docs/ps2d.html "165 PS/2 system options
      not set" So I would think that you would correct this using the
      Reference diskette for the model 80. You might check out
      http://ps2supersite.homedns.org/files/ for the latest release of the
      80 reference disk in case the one you have isn't. Another site (
      http://www.bioscentral.com/misc/ibmdiag.htm ) lists the 165 error as
      "PS/2 adapter ID mismatch" so maybe you can try pulling out any
      unnecessary cards and see if the error goes away.
