Hi Martin,

Sounds card is working now. The older driver is what my sound card liked. I'm including some screenshots of the setup process and settings that worked for me. You definitely need to know what address, DMA and IRQ settings the card is configured for. In picture 5 I show my config.sys items related to the sound card, I deleted the last two lines since I'm not using the game port.

Hi Martin,

Yes we can. I'll put together a document for you that you can use to finish the Wiki page. Once I have everything working I'm going to write the system and reinstall from scratch to make sure I have all the steps down. I'm fighting with the sounds card right now so need to get that figured out.

Just looking for TCP/IP connectivity to access internal FTP server and SMB shares on my local network.


Following your directions and specifically using the drivers in "LANSVR30.OS2" worked for getting the Kingston card and running.

Also finding the below wiki page that Martin wrote in 2014 was a great step by step as well.

Thank you Martin & Tom!

Hi Martin,

I reconfigured how the CF card and the CD-ROM are attached to the SIIG EIDE controller.

Compact Flash to IDE Adapter - SD-CF-IDE-BR
Mitsumi CD-ROM - CRMC-FX4824T

1) Disabled secondary IDE interface
2) Set CF IDE adapter to master
3) Set CD-ROM to slave
4) Connected both to to the primary IDE interface on the SIIG controller

OS/2 installed without issue and boots without any issue using this configuration

I'm trying to get this OPL (YMF701-S) sounds card working under Warp Connect. I have tried a few of the Sound Blaster options that come built-in but no luck. I have included a picture of config output. Not sure if this card is supported under OS/2.

I'm slowly making progress in my quest to get a Tandy/GRiD 386sc installed with OS/2 Warp Connect. I'm now at the stage of trying to get network going. The computer has a Kingston KNE-2121 card installed and have verifed operation under DOS with mTCIP. I'm struggling a bit with OS/2 and just now sure what drivers work. I have started the MPTS config tool and select "LAN adapters and Protocols" - > "Configure" -> "Other Adapters"

I have found KNE-2100 drivers and its broken into 2 disks.

Disk 1:

Hi Ivan,

I never even considered separating out the OS partition from a application partition. What your saying makes a lot of sense and if it works well I think I will give it a try. I can't think of a reason not to try it.

Great! thank you Dave and Martin. First hurdle is clear. Now trying to get network and sound going. If I can't figure it out I'll start another thread.

So I was able to get the install going using the original disks and floppy's that came with Warp Connect. When setting the CD-ROM to primary on the second IDE interface the computer would not recognize the drive. After trying multiple combinations the one that worked was this:

-Moved Compact Flash (C drive) to the secondary IDE interface and set as master
-Moved CD-ROM to primary IDE interface and set as master
-Verified motherboard IDE interfaces were disabled in the BIOS
-Booted from OS/2 Warp Connect install floppy and install proceeded

I think I got lucky with the IDE card being smart enough during the bus scan to figure out the order of devices and let me boot in this odd configuration.

I'm waiting on a new compact flash card to be delivered so my next question is what is the largest primary partition I can use with the stock OS/2 Warp Connect FDISK?

Motherboard disk controllers are disabled and all drives are connected to a 16-BIT EIDE controller. The HD (CF card) is attached on the primary IDE interface and set as master, the CD-ROM is connected to the second IDE interface but I believe its set as secondary.

So here is something interesting. When using the disk from the above download I get a red screen with CD-rom error (pics 1 and 2). If I use the original disks I don't get the CD-ROM error but can't proceed with the install (pictures 3, 4, 5 and 6).

Hi Martin,

Yes, 3.5" diskettes. I'll download and give it a try. Thanks!

I'm ready to try and install OS/2 Warp v3 Connect (Blue spline) CD-ROM on my Tandy/GRiD 325sc. The systems boots using the 2 provided floppy disks but when it asks for the CD and I press enter nothing happens. It appears that the CD-ROM is not initialized, it won't even let me eject the CD. Once I boot back into DOS and the CD-ROM drivers are loaded I have no issue. In searching around it seems there is mention to update the floppy disks with newer ATAPI drivers and driver for larger HD support. The question I have is what and where are the drivers and do I just copy them to the floppy? I'm assuming I would need to edit some file to define the new drivers. Is there any guide for this?

Thanks Martin. Will do, I'm sure I'll need help as I get ready to go down the OS/2 path.

Thank you all for the information. I think with all the info you all provided I'll be able to source a card. Great info about SNAP being supported. I'll do so digging on where to download the fixpacks and how to install. Thanks again.
