I have an HP 100LX. Unfortunately, HP 100LX or 200LX does NOT use an 80186
or 80188 or 80c186 or 80c188 or any other 80186 compatible chips. It uses an
PC compatible Intel integrated CPU, with integrated CGA controller,
integrated 8259 compatible  interrupt controller, and some other controllers
as well.
