Well if you remove the scsi card you are lacking your scsi drive, so you
get an IML error.  You need to boot from a good reference disk.  I say
good, because you have to be careful doing it under Windows.  It's
something like not running a directory of the newly created disk under
windows, or something similar.

Is that kind of tippy?  I have a Model 80 (same case as the 60), but I
don't think I would want to stand on it.  The only computer that I own
and feel safe standing on is my Microvax 3400.

People run Linux on PS/2's all the time.  I think SCO supports
Microchannel, but I'd have to verify that to be sure.

I didn't think QNX was considered Unix, just Posix compliant.
