Flextronics does support for all the Tadpole machines, their site has the user
manual and Solaris 8/9/10 drivers for the IIe. The driver discs are for
specific Solaris versions though, hopefully your 8 media is 02/02, 02/04, or
A USB keyboard/mouse has to be used for the installation, the internals
donbt work until the driver CD is installed.
