      What versions of OS/2 were you looking for images of?

      As to MS OS/2, The hospital where I first worked with OS/2 had lots of MS
      OS/2 1.3 supplied by IBM for some strange reason. They were an IBM
      mainframe shop and used Model 30's, but IBM installed Microsoft's OS/2 on
      them. The hospital trashed it all a couple years or so after I left in
      1992, by which time they upgraded to Warp. I wish I had grabbed a few
      boxes when I left as finding MS branded OS/2 is kind of the Holy Grail now.
      I occasionally see manuals on eBay but never an entire set with media.
