William's Microchannel Adapter Information
The following links lead to pages I have either created from scratch, or added information to. These pages cover a variety of Microchannel-bus option or expansion cards that are used in IBM PS/2 computers (Models 50 and higher) or some of the few clones that are floating around.
Before using any information presented here, read and understand the notice and disclaimer section below. If you are selling an item discussed here on eBay or anywhere else, read the "Information for eBay Sellers" below.
At the very least I have provided an adapter outline and a set of component IDs. Whenever I have more information or files relating to the item in question, I have placed such files online. Some of this information does not exist elsewhere.

More projects will be completed as I find the time to do them. Please note that I only document hardware. I don't presently have the skills to write device drivers or software for your adapter. If you don't see a card here, or if you have any information at all regarding something shown here, drop me an e-mail. You will be credited for your subsmission if you wish.
