                     20: You can connect vt100 to serial connector, and on machines that run X
                     21: you can use on-screen keyboards.

1.1       mspo       28: 
                     29: Yes. If your machine supports IBM microdrive in WinCE, it will work
                     30: fine. On the IBM z50, the IBM microdrive and PCMCIA TypeIII hard drive
                     31: are supported, but beware, they significantly reduce battery life.

1.1       mspo       34: 
                     35: There is no such thing as APM hardware. APM is a BIOS spec only. The
                     36: Vr41xx CPUs support a course battery level only (very low, which is
                     37: really good). There's nothing like a battery percentage in the hardware,
                     38: unless it is an addon doo-dad.

1.2     ! ryoon      40: ## Is a test snapshot with the IBM z50 LCD suspend available anywhere?
1.1       mspo       41: 
                     42: In the -current sources. If you want to use test code, build a kernel
                     43: with ITE8181\_LCD\_CONTROL\_ENABLE or change the
                     44: ite8181\_lcd\_control\_disable variable to 0 with gdb. For more
                     45: information see src/sys/arch/hpcmips/dev/ite8181.c.

1.2     ! ryoon      47: ## Does USB work on the MobilePro 8xx machines?
1.1       mspo       48: 
                     49: Yes. Some umass devices have strange errors, but most devices work
                     50: correctly. Note that the USB port on these machines can only supply a
                     51: max of \~500mA, so an externally powered USB hub is highly recommended.
