Neighbor wants me to put in second hard drive on his Olivetti M300-30 486 but I can't get to the CMOS settings. Does anyone know the key combination I need. (He doesn't have a manual) :)

I'm afraid that your neighbor lost. I worked with Olivetti computers.
It doesn't have "on-line" access to the CMOS. To alter CMOS settings
he need bootable floppy from Olivetti with proprietary CMOS editing
utility. You can try http://www.sysopt.com/tweakbios.html to
get Tweak BIOS.
