9595 Ardent Tool

The MCA Mafia


Most of these pages were originally from Louis Ohland's 9595 Ardent Tool of Capitalism collection of pages.

IMPORTANT:
The information on these pages is years out of date, and this resource is no longer maintained. This page was created back in 2003 or so when its original author (Louis Ohland) removed his informational PS/2 pages and replaced them with stuff pertaining mainly to the RS/6000. I took it upon myself to try and meld the two worlds together, with the original goal of providing the latest information in one place, since I had much more space available for hosting files. I didn't realize how much work that would be, and after completing this index page, very little else happened. Many if not all of the links to external sites on this page, and the pages linked below, have gone bad. If you are interested in the most up-to-date IBM PS/2 information from Louis Ohland, you probably want to visit this page.
