A IBM PS2 model 80 has lost it's cookies.  In other words it can't remember what it's cmos configuration was.  There is a way during reboot to get it into self test.  This will setup the microchannel, memory and other configurations so that it can boot properly.   Any of you old timers out there remember what the three fingered salute was to start the process.  I have a few of these machines that are just fine for mail and the web but I can't remember what the key sequence was.  HELP.. If you remember this will be an easy 300 points

If it is possible on your machine it is Ctrl-Alt-Ins after Ctrl-Alt-Del. If nothing happens when you hit Ctrl-Alt-Ins at the prompt then you must use the reference disk to change CMOS values. Take a look here: Http://www.computercraft.com/docs/ps2sect.html.. Have Fun !!! Good Luck !!!

Hey Chev thanks for responding. I will attempt this tonight and get back to ya.  I think you are right.  At least the salute sound familiar.  Again thanks.  And the people that will get the computer thanks you.
