        !            28: The current status is that we have no idea. If you have any ideas,

        !            36: 
        !            37: You can connect vt100 to serial connector, and on machines that run X
        !            38: you can use on-screen keyboards.

        !            44: #### Can I use an IBM microdrive? ([top](#others))
        !            45: 
        !            46: Yes. If your machine supports IBM microdrive in WinCE, it will work
        !            47: fine. On the IBM z50, the IBM microdrive and PCMCIA TypeIII hard drive
        !            48: are supported, but beware, they significantly reduce battery life.
        !            49: 
        !            50: #### Does H/PC hardware have APM hardware? ([top](#others))
        !            51: 
        !            52: There is no such thing as APM hardware. APM is a BIOS spec only. The
        !            53: Vr41xx CPUs support a course battery level only (very low, which is
        !            54: really good). There's nothing like a battery percentage in the hardware,
        !            55: unless it is an addon doo-dad.
        !            56: 
        !            57: #### Is a test snapshot with the IBM z50 LCD suspend available anywhere? ([top](#others))
        !            58: 
        !            59: In the -current sources. If you want to use test code, build a kernel
        !            60: with ITE8181\_LCD\_CONTROL\_ENABLE or change the
        !            61: ite8181\_lcd\_control\_disable variable to 0 with gdb. For more
        !            62: information see src/sys/arch/hpcmips/dev/ite8181.c.
        !            63: 
        !            64: #### Does USB work on the MobilePro 8xx machines? ([top](#others))
        !            65: 
        !            66: Yes. Some umass devices have strange errors, but most devices work
        !            67: correctly. Note that the USB port on these machines can only supply a
        !            68: max of \~500mA, so an externally powered USB hub is highly recommended.
