IBM PS/2 Model M5-1 "Clicky" Keyboard w/Trackball Auction (not associated with seller)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5790946983

This person is selling these things BRAND NEW (Buy It Now) for $9.99 + 
$10 shipping.  This is the Model M that has the trackball above the 
arrow keys.  Date of Mfg on backs are 1993.

I know I'd like to have one of these babies (I just got one), sure some 
of you would also...if you don't already. :)

He's got nearly 50 left.

Notice: These are  PayPal *only*...never mind that the listing says:

"Seller's payment instructions
Buyer must contact us within 2 days of auction closing if not using the
paypal option."

But that's not the case as per the seller. He's willing to take a money
order since I didn't know (can I be the only one?) but others might consider
this before buying any keyboards.

     Granted I didn't look too hard at which mouse driver I have, but
it didn't find the trackball when it loaded. Are you using a specific
one? Keyboard portion IDs just like all the other 101-key designs
(83ABh).

What OS are you using?  It should work as a standard PS/2 mouse... 
That's what WinXP says on my machine. :\  Perhaps the plugs are swapped? 
  :)  I think I plugged my in backwards the first time. :)

Hi Daniel,
> What OS are you using? It should work as a standard PS/2 mouse...
     My 9556-DEB is some flavor of DOS high enough to be a good
Assembler/VB-DOS development system. Later I'll see if the trackball
(maybe the same features of that for the L40SX:
http://www.gilanet.com/ohlandl/8543/8543.html#trackpoint) reports a
mouse ID. Otherwise buttons over two are a no-no for the Microsoft
driver.

Those two extra buttons aren't really "extra buttons"... they are simply 
click-lock buttons for the corresponding bigger buttons.  Left small 
button is the same as left big button except it acts like you're holding 
it down, until you click it again.  Good luck with it.

Hi Daniel,
     PC-DOS, Rev. 1. Microsoft Mouse Driver 8.23. Which is the typical 
"large, but find any mouse, driver".

     Like the L40SX reversible trackball/mouse then. At least the trackball 
side. FWIW the same Microsoft driver does find it.

IBM Model M "clicky" keyboards
Big fan! A few questions, though, none of which are answered on any of the clicky keyboard websites or Wikipedia. Alright, so you've got the classic, original models: 1390120, 1390131, 1391401, 1391403, 1391406, 1391472, and 1391506. These are all using buckling spring (clicky) technology with a detachable SDL-to-AT/PS2 cable and removable keys. They have the solid metal chassis underside construction and weigh about 5 pounds. Then you've got the next phase of models: 42H1292, 52G9700, 82G2383,and 92G7453. These are completely identical to the originals as far as I c...

IBM PS/2 vs standard "clone" 1.44 drives
I own two MCA IDE cards, so IDE disks can be used. Has ever built an MCA card in order to replace the PS/2 floppy with a standard (?) one ? The clone 1.44 disk must be bootable, obviously :) Floppy drives are double-critical, since the setup is floppy based ... supervinx wrote: > Has ever built an MCA card in order to replace the PS/2 floppy with a > standard (?) one ? IBM Printing Systems (long before the outfit was sold to Ricoh) used the PS/2-style 720K and 1.44MB 3.5-inch floppy drives in the 6262 printer. When the PS/2-style drives became almost impossible to obtain, they came up with adapter cables that allowed them to use selected OEM 3.5-inch floppy drives in the 6262 printer. They could do this because their drive mounting allowed for enough room in the back to accommodate the adapter cable, if you wanted to do the same with most PS/2s you'd need to "customize" the floppy mounting location. Some of the RS/6000 models also used the adapter cable, I believe that the 7012-390 was one example. I'm pretty sure that this adapter cable only worked with systems that used a single floppy drive.

IBM "Olympic" TR adapters / PS/2 ThinkPads with Cardbus?
