Hi, well this is amazing.  It's only the second time some one has known what I'm talking about!

I have 6 LANstations a mix of 16s and 20s.  Only one of them will boot which I boot from its hdd or a Netwear 3.12 server.

Iv tried all sorts over the years (about 15).

These don't have the infrared system but in specs Iv read on the bios there is mention of a security bit on the boot floppy.  I need some one that worked on them back in the day.

It's SO frustrating, as is the way of playing with old tech.
