Ya know, I found the Norton book to be really disjointed --
it didn't present the information in an A to Z sort of way.
IIRC he didn't write it but lent his name to a previously
published book ("Assembly Language Safari on the IBM PC" by
mumble and mumble). I'll check my copy tonight & verify that.
OTOH, "Inside the IBM PC" is a *really* valuable tool,
as well as a historical resource, and you'd have to pry my
first edition copy from my cold, dead hands ;-)
