Speaking of inscrutable error codes from IBM BIOS, in the  big
equipment purge of 2006 at work I obtained a number of IBM PC  model
350 and 365s.  In my various disassembling and re-assembling of  pieces
amongst these systems to make a smaller number of maximally  configured
systems I occasionally get an inscrutable error code form the  BIOS.

Does anyone know if there are manuals for these models  online?  I
tried searching IBM's web site, but immediately got lost in  the
large amount of irrelevant results.
What errors? I am familiar with those models. Fairly standard PC, nothing  
unusual about them. You're looking for the HHM for these computers, but their  
website has changed a lot since I worked there. DId you try (  ?  You  might also want to look around 
at too.
