Old IBM OS and user manuals..?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I came across some old stuff today, and wanted to get some info on what its worth, if anything.

First item: IBM Guide to Operations Personal Computers AT 6280102

This is in the original packaging w/disks. The disks look unused (old 5.5 inch floppy's) and the manuals are untouched (no writing) and guide 2 and 3 are still in the plastic wrap.

Second item: IBM Disk Operating System Version 3.10 6138519

This is also in the original packaging, the outer cover slightly torn at edges but the booklet inside looks new. No writing or anything, looks like it was used once if that.
Disks are also 5.5 inch floppy's and look like they have never seen the inside of a computer.

Any old school guys on here know anything about these, lol?

*I'll post pics if needed. My camera does not seem to like me at the moment. Have to get a different camera to take pics*

I used that for over an year with my Pravetz when I was 5-6 year old! I knew ALL the commands Do you know that it can "park" the HDD?

EDIT: Look at that awesomness!

Lol, whats sad is, I actually have a computer that I can test it on. I have an old Goldstar 486 (with the turbo button) that has a 3.5 and 5.25 floppy drive.

*I actually found close one on Ebay. The Dos 3.10 looks exactly like the pic in this ebay link, but I have the disks and it includes everything not just the manual.*
