          DESCRIPTION
          IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2 STANDARD EDITION VERSION 1.2
          The many enhancements available today for IBM Operating System/2
          Standard Edition are an advance for the implementation of SAA on
          programmable workstations.  The availability of the SAA Dialog
          Manager in the IBM OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version
          1.2, and the enhancements to the Presentation Manager (TM) emphasize
          IBM's commitment to SAA.
           (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
          OS/2 INFORMATION PRESENTATION FACILITY:  The OS/2 Information
          Presentation Facility provides the application developer with an
          easy-to-use facility to define help panels and built-in functions
          (independent of application flow and logic) to service end-user help
          requests made during application execution.
                 The easy-to-use OS/2 Information Presentation Facility
          Compiler for help panels makes it possible for the panels to be
          developed by someone other than the actual programmer, such as a
          person skilled in building information products.  Later, the panels
          and the application processing code can be combined into the total
          application.  The OS/2 Information Presentation Facility can also
          provide linkage to a tutorial and/or any other program provided by
          the application programmer.
                 Both Presentation Manager and Dialog Manager applications may
          use the services of the OS/2 Information Presentation Facility.
          Programmers who use the OS/2 Information Presentation Facility when
          writing Presentation Manager applications can increase their
          productivity by not having to support help requests directly.  They
          have an easy-to-use OS/2 Information Presentation Facility Compiler
          in the OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2.  By using
          OS/2 Information Presentation Facility, consistency with SAA Common
          User Access (SAA/CUA) is enabled.
          ONLINE COMMAND REFERENCE:  The usability of IBM Operating System/2
          Standard Edition has been significantly improved by placing
          traditional Command Reference information online, at the user's
          fingertips in an electronic book.  This electronic book contains
          familiar sections such as a Table of Contents, topic pages and an
          Index, which are accessed through a Presentation Manager application
          that can be windowed.
                 Using the application pull-downs, a user can search for
          specific words or phrases, maintain or view existing bookmarks, print
          one or more topic sections, or cut sections from the book and paste
          them to a file.  Individual command information includes the name of
          the command, its purpose or function, the command syntax and the
          parameter definitions.  The interface that presents the Command
          Reference (online) is the same as that used by the OS/2 Information
          Presentation Facility for presenting help panels.
                 A Command Reference hard-copy manual may be ordered
          separately.  Refer to the ORDERING INFORMATION section for details.
          DUAL BOOT:  To make it possible to boot either OS/2 or DOS from the
          same fixed disk drive, C:, a user may now run the new BOOT utility.
          Whenever the user wants to change the operating system, the BOOT
          utility is run.  Upon completion the user must re-boot the system.
          The BOOT command runs under OS/2, the DOS compatibility mode and DOS.
          NOTE:  Dual boot of OS/2 and DOS is limited to the file allocation
          table (FAT) file system.  Users who want the High Performance File
          System installed on the C: drive will be unable to have dual boot.
                 For OS/2 system installation to install dual boot on the C:
          drive, the drive must contain a bootable DOS 3.2, 3.30 or 4.00 or an
          OS/2 dual boot installed system.  However, DOS 3.30 or 4.00 is
          recommended for greater compatibility with OS/2.  Refer to the
          product publications for further guidance on usage of OS/2 dual boot.
          NEW FILE, DESKTOP AND PRINT MANAGER INTERFACES:  The OS/2 default
          user interface has been significantly enhanced to provide improved
          usability, additional function and closer conformance to the most
          current SAA/CUA Advanced Interface Design Guidelines.  Refer to the
          publication (SC26-4582) for additional information.
                 The most significant enhancements are:
          o   A new File Manager interface for displaying and manipulating
              files and subdirectories
              -   The File Manager optionally displays files as icons instead
                  of text lists, giving a more pictorial view of files.
              -   A program may be started by selecting an input file from the
                  File Manager list, "dragging" the file to a program listed by
                  either the Desktop Manager or the File Manager and "dropping"
                  the file on the desired program.  Either OS/2 or DOS programs
                  may be started by using the File Manager.
              -   Files may be moved, copied and printed by using the "drag"
                  and "drop" technique.
              -   The File Manager font can be selected from any of the
                  installed fonts, allowing the user to choose the amount of
                  information displayed on the screen.
              -   The File Manager provides an improved associate function,
                  which allows data files to be associated with one or more
                  programs either by file name or property.  When the file is
                  double clicked, the list of programs is displayed, allowing
                  the user to select which program to run.
              -   A new search function allows the searching for files, using
                  either wild cards in file names or file properties stored
                  within the file to list files meeting the specified search
                  criteria.  File lists resulting from searches may be used to
                  manipulate files in the same manner as directory lists are
                  used.
          o   A new Desktop Manager interface for adding and starting programs
              -   More than one group of programs listed in the Desktop Manager
                  can be simultaneously displayed.
              -   Icons are displayed next to program or group titles listed by
                  the Desktop Manager.
              -   Allows programs to be moved, copied or added to a program
                  group by selecting the program from the File Manager or
                  Desktop Manager list, "dragging" the program to the desired
                  group and "dropping" the program in the new group
              -   DOS programs may be added to and started from the Desktop
                  Manager program list.
          o   A new Print Manager interface for managing print requests.
              -   Allows the user to direct print output to a specific print
                  queue
              -   Allows the user to configure printers/plotters and queues
                  from the Print Manager instead of using the Control Panel.
          DIALOG MANAGER:  The IBM OS/2 Dialog Manager is a productivity aid to
          assist application developers in managing input and output between
          their applications and the end user.  The Dialog Manager is contained
          in IBM OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2.
          NOTE:  For information on redistribution of Dialog Manager run time
          and files, refer to the TERMS AND CONDITIONS, LICENSING section.
                 The IBM OS/2 Dialog Manager provides significant elements of
          the interface for the SAA Dialog Manager discribed in the SAA
          publication, COMMON PROGRAMMING INTERFACE DIALOG REFERENCE
          (SC26-4356).
                 Application developers using the Dialog Manager can
          efficiently implement application dialogs that take advantage of
          Presentation Manager facilities.  The Dialog Manager provides
          application programming interfaces (APIs) for the dialog elements
          dealing with display-related services, dialog variable handling
          (function pools) and create/end dialog session control.
                 The Dialog Tag Language (DTL), also described in the CPI
          Dialog Reference, is used to define dialog elements other than
          application program logic: application panels, help panels,
          application command tables and messages.  The compiler to process
          panels written in the DTL is contained in IBM OS/2 Programming Tools
          and Information Version 1.2.
                 The Dialog Manager and the DTL help the application conform to
          SAA/CUA as described in the publication, SYSTEMS APPLICATION
          ARCHITECTURE COMMON USER ACCESS ADVANCED INTERFACE DESIGN GUIDE
          (SC26-4582).
                 The general structure of the OS/2 Dialog Manager may be
          recognized by current dialog developers (EZ-VU or ISPF), facilitating
          the migration of current dialogs to the IBM OS/2 environment.
                 Dialog Manager programs may be written in C/2 (TM) 1.1,
          FORTRAN/2 (TM), Macro Assembler/2 (TM), Pascal Compiler/2 (TM), and
          COBOL/2 (TM).
           (TM) Trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.
          HIGH PERFORMANCE FILE SYSTEM:  The High Performance File System
          manages large disk media in a fast and consistent manner.  The High
          Performance File System is an attractive alternative to the file
          allocation table or FAT-based file system because it supports DASD
          with as many as 16 partitions and can handle partitions as large as 2
          gigabytes.  The High Performance File System maintains compatibility
          with the FAT file system at the API level, is less performance
          sensitive as file sizes and/or directories get very large, and can
          work with files that have either the traditional or new long file
          name characteristic.  The system installation procedure is used to
          optionally install the High Performance File System.
                 If a partition is formatted for use by the High Performance
          File System, the contents of that partition will be lost.  Copies of
          existing files should be made before that partition is formatted.
          After the partition is formatted, the copied files may then be placed
          in the newly formatted partition and accessed using the High
          Performance File System.
                 Files created using the High Performance File System may be
          accessed by programs running in the DOS environment of OS/2.  Files
          created using the High Performance File System may not be accessed by
          either DOS 3.3 or 4.00.
                 The High Performance File System is implemented to be bootable
          as the C: drive.
          NOTE:  The file system will be enhanced to preserve the case of the
          file name when the file is created or renamed.  Utilities will be
          enhanced to allow for a space and other special characters to be
          imbedded within quoted file names.  (To be available November 30,
          1989 -- refer to UPDATE ordering information.)
          NEW PRINTER DEVICE DRIVERS:  All device drivers delivered with
          Version 1.1, either with the product or with its device support
          supplement, will be packaged as separate media and shipped with the
          Version 1.2 base operating system.
                 A PostScript (1) driver is included with IBM Operating
          System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 to allow applications to output
          PostScript to the IBM Personal Page Printer II Models 4216-30, 031
          and to other printers with PostScript output capabilities.
                 A generic Printer Control Language device driver that supports
          printers compatible with the Hewlett Packard LaserJet and LaserJet II
          series of Printers will be available November 30, 1989, in an IBM
          Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 UPDATE.  (Refer to
          the UPDATE ordering information)
                 An Epson device driver is included with IBM Operating System/2
          Standard Edition Version 1.2 that supports devices compatible with
          the Epson FX80 (9 wire) and LQ1500 (24 wire) series of wire matrix
          printers.
                 IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition has the capability to
          separately install device drivers if needed.  For example, this
          capability can be used if a customer acquires new hardware in the
          future that requires installation of a different device driver.

          PRESENTATION MANAGER ENHANCEMENTS:  The Presentation Manager has
          further enhanced its SAA/CUA enabling by providing more function and
          greater usability for both application developers and end users.
          Some of the CUA enhancements are enabled automatically; others will
          require that the application be changed.
                 In addition to previously announced enhancements, the
          Presentation Manager now takes full advantage of the new OS/2
          Information Presentation Facility.  Presentation Manager programmers
          may produce help screens using all of the functions of the OS/2
          Information Presentation Facility.  Use of the OS/2 Information
          Presentation Facility by both the Presentation Manager and
          applications, ensures consistency of use and appearance across the
          system and applications.  The help screens for the Presentation
          Manager itself have been produced using the OS/2 Information
          Presentation Facility Compiler.
                 Presentation Manager programs may be written in IBM FORTRAN/2
          and IBM COBOL/2 (refer to the note in the section on IBM OS/2
          Programming Tools and Information Version 1.2 on FORTRAN/2 and
          COBOL/2) as well as IBM C/2 1.1 and IBM Macro Assembler/2.
          OTHER IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2 STANDARD EDITION ENHANCEMENTS
          SYSTEM EDITOR ENHANCEMENTS:  The system editor in IBM OS/2 now
          executes as a windowed Presentation Manager application.  Files
          created with the Version 1.1 system editor are compatible with
          Version 1.2.  The appearance and operational characteristics of the
          Version 1.2 system editor are designed to the SAA/CUA definition.
          IBM DOS COMPATIBILITY:  The DOS environment of IBM Operating System/2
          Standard Edition Version 1.2 protects a user's investment in current
          software by providing the capability to run existing IBM DOS
          programs, subject to certain limitations described in the IBM
          Operating System/2 documentation.  OS/2 SE 1.2 will have a larger DOS
          environment than the one in OS/2 SE 1.1.
                 Generally, the DOS environment is compatible to a subset of
          IBM DOS 4.00 function.  Support for disk files greater than 32MB was
          included in IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1, and
          is available in DOS compatibility mode.  The IBM DOS 4.00 support for
          greater than 25 lines of text mode display, and support for
          additional video modes for Personal System/2 (R) (PS/2 (R)) displays
          are also available in DOS compatibility mode.  The remaining new IBM
          DOS 4.00 functions, such as the DOS Shell or LIM/EMS, are not
          supported.  The interface for the DOS compatibility environment has
          been significantly enhanced by allowing DOS programs to be started
          from either the Desktop Manager or the File Manager.  The DOS command
          line interface that resembles the one in IBM DOS 3.30 is also
          provided.  The family API provided with IBM Operating System/2 allows
          programs to be written that will run on IBM DOS 3.30, IBM DOS 4.00,
          IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 or IBM OS/2 Standard Edition
          Version 1.2.

             Corporation.
          RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY AND SERVICEABILITY (RAS):  The RAS
          capabilities of IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition have been
          enhanced with several new or modified functions.  Improvements have
          been made for the collection, logging and reporting of detailed
          information if a system error occurs.  These improvements permit a
          problem to be isolated faster and more accurately.
                 Consistency between the Standard and Extended versions of IBM
          OS/2 has been improved by making the application of corrective
          service appear more nearly the same on both products.
          ADDITIONAL VERSION 1.2 ENHANCEMENTS:  Additional enhancements have
          been made to improve data integrity, performance and usability.
                 The system can now accommodate 64,000 file handles, 32,000 per
          process.
          HARDWARE RELATED ENHANCEMENTS
          DEVICE INDEPENDENCE:  The display and mouse device support have been
          rewritten for IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 to
          facilitate the attachment of other displays and mice that normally
          may not have been supported by IBM Operating System/2 Standard
          Edition.

TECHINFO TECHNICAL INFORMATION

          SPECIFIED OPERATING ENVIRONMENT
          MACHINE REQUIREMENTS:  The minimum hardware configuration for IBM
          Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 is as follows:
          o   One of the following system units with a minimum of 2MB of memory
              for running OS/2 applications, or a minimum of 2.5MB of memory
              for running OS/2 and DOS applications.  The actual amount of
              memory required is a function of the working set requirements of
              the operating system and applications.  There are typical
              application scenarios that require significantly greater amounts
              of memory and DASD storage.  Refer to the IBM OPERATING SYSTEM/2
              INFORMATION AND PLANNING GUIDE (G360-2650) for assistance in
              estimating total memory requirements.

          NOTE:  In a non-Presentation Manager screen group, an IBM Operating
          System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 application program can use the
          IBM 8514/A Adapter in advanced function (high resolution) mode by
          issuing 8514/A adapter interface calls.
                 The adapter interface software is contained on a diskette
          shipped with the 8514/A adapter.  Customers using the 8514/A in
          advanced function mode must ensure that the adapter interface code is
          at the correct level for use with Operating System/2.  The adapter
          interface level can be determined by running HDIVER.EXE in the HDIOS2

          COMPATIBILITY:  The OS/2 Default User Interface has been
          significantly enhanced to provide increased function, better
          usability, overall appearance and conformance to CUA.  Some enhanced
          functions such as move and copy files have been modified and work
          differently from IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1.
          Refer to the programming publications for specific information on
          these changes.
                 With the following exceptions, programs designed to run under
          IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 will run under
          IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 and do not need
          to be reinstalled.
          NOTE:  Customers who have compiled programs using IBM FORTRAN/2
          Version 1.00 or 1.01, which are to be run on IBM Operating System/2
          Standard Edition Version 1.2, must get maintenance level 1.02 of IBM
          FORTRAN/2 and recompile their programs to ensure proper function and
          correct results.
                 If the application uses certain subsystem function such as
          physical video buffer access, registering of subsystem functions, or
          character device monitors, it will be required to run in a
          full-screen OS/2 session.  Otherwise, the application can be windowed
          by specifying it as RUN IN A TEXT WINDOW when installing the
          application under the OS/2 Presentation Manager.
                 Licensees of BASIC Compiler/2, Macro Assembler/2, Pascal
          Compiler/2 or C/2 Version 1.0 may submit the CodeView Update order
          form contained in the IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 package
          to receive an update to CodeView containing advanced function for
          debugging OS/2 applications.  The order form must be accompanied by
          proof of license of the eligible language product being used.  IBM
          will honor requests for the update until November 1, 1990.
          NOTE:  This CodeView update is the same update made available for IBM
          OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1.
                 Depending on the programming language used to develop
          applications, some capabilities of IBM Operating System/2 Standard
          Edition Version 1.2 may not be possible to implement in an
          application.
                 IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.2 does not
          support the SYS utility or the /s option of the FORMAT command.
                 The BACKUP and RESTORE commands are supported in protect-mode
          only.
                 Programs compiled using the Version 1.1 Presentation Manager
          will run on Version 1.2 without change.
                 The DOS environment of IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition
          Version 1.2 protects a user's investment in current software by
          providing the capability to run existing IBM DOS programs, subject to
          certain limitations described in the IBM Operating System/2
          documentation.  OS/2 SE 1.2 will have a larger DOS environment than
          the DOS environment in OS/2 SE 1.1.
                 Generally, the DOS environment is compatible to a subset of
          IBM DOS 4.00 function.  Support for disk files greater than 32MB was
          included in IBM Operating System/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1, and
          is available in DOS compatibility mode.  The IBM DOS 4.00 support for
          greater than 25 lines of text mode display, and support for
          additional video modes for PS/2 displays are also available in DOS
          compatibility mode.  The remaining new IBM DOS 4.00 functions, such
          as the DOS Shell or LIM/EMS, are not supported.  The interface for
          the DOS compatibility environment has been significantly enhanced by
          allowing DOS programs to be started from either the Desktop Manager
          or the File Manager.  The DOS command line interface that resembles
          the one in DOS 3.30 is also provided.  The IBM Operating System/2
          Family API allows programs to be written that will run on IBM DOS
          3.30, IBM DOS 4.00, IBM OS/2 Standard Edition Version 1.1 or Version
          1.2.
                 Many existing DOS applications may be run in the DOS mode of
          OS/2.  Users should be aware that some DOS applications, such as
          communications and timing dependent programs, may not function
          properly in the DOS mode of OS/2.

           (R) Registered trademark of International Business Machines
             Corporation.
          COMPATIBILITY:  The IBM Personal System/2 Model 30 286 (8530-E31) is
          compatible with the IBM Personal Computer (5150), Personal Computer
          XT and Personal Computer AT at the BIOS interface level (BIOS not
          identical) and at most hardware interfaces.  The Model 30 286 has
          been designed to maintain compatibility with existing personal
          computer software and non-timing dependent features.  Due to the high
          level of integration, features such as Personal Computer XT and
          Personal Computer AT memory upgrades and graphic adapters are not
          supported.  Specific hardware products, features and software
          products that have been tested and are supported in the Model 30 286
          environment are listed in ATTACHMENT A.  The Model 30 286 has not
          been tested with all non-IBM features/options.  Additional
          information on the interface and attachment requirements may be
          obtained by reviewing the IBM PERSONAL SYSTEM/2 MODEL 30 286
          TECHNICAL REFERENCE (S01F-0237) manual, which can be ordered through
          IBM or an authorized IBM dealer.
          LIMITATIONS:  Additional memory installed on the IBM Personal
          System/2 Multifunction Adapter (30F5364) can only be used in a
          Personal System/2 Model 30 286 with 0.5MB of memory installed on the
          system board.  Memory removed from the system board can be installed
          on the PS/2 Multifunction Adapter.
                 The ability to use a non-IBM memory expansion card in the
          Personal System/2 Model 30 286 is dependent on the flexibility of the
          card in establishing its starting memory address.  The amount of
          planar memory (standard plus kits) and the corresponding starting
          memory address is illustrated in the following table:
                 PLANAR                    EXPANSION CARD
                 MEMORY                   STARTING ADDRESS
                 512KB                         512KB
                  1MB                       1MB + 384KB
                  2MB                       2MB + 384KB
                  4MB                       4MB + 384KB
                 Memory expansion cards must support the listed starting
          address to properly operate in a system with a given amount of planar
          memory.
                 IBM Disk Operating System (DOS) 3.3 MODE will not support
          19,200 baud on the Model 30 286.  DOS 4.0 will support 19,200 baud on
          the Model 30 286.
                 The following memory expansion adapters and memory module kits
          are not supported on the Model 30 286:
          o   0.5 to 3MB Memory Expansion Adapter (#3395) (55X3560)
          o   1.0 to 6MB Memory Expansion Adapter (#3400) (55X3679)
          o   Enhanced Memory Adapter (74X8635)
          o   Multifunction Memory Adapter (#3619) (74X8640)
          o   0.5MB Memory Module Kit (55X3547)
          o   1.0MB Memory Module Kit (55X3681)
          o   2.0MB Memory Module Kit (74X7833).
          USER GROUP REQUIREMENTS:  The Model 30 286 (8530-E31) addresses
          numerous customer requests and satisfies (partially or fully)
          requirements submitted by the appropriate IBM User Group (for
          example, SHARE, SEAS, GUIDE, European G.U.I.D.E. and ASG).
          PLANNING INFORMATION
          CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES:  The Personal System/2 Model 30 286
          (8530-E31) is designated as customer setup (CSU).  CSU allowance is
          one day.
          CABLE ORDERS:  No cabling is required, other than for system power
          and display connections.  Cables are provided with the system unit,
          display, and keyboard, and the instructions are provided as part of
          initial setup.
          INSTALLABILITY:  By following the setup instructions, the user
          attaches the keyboard and peripherals and inserts the Reference
          Diskette.  Power is then turned on and Set Configuration is run after
          the computer has successfully completed its initial self-tests.
          The Model 30 286 has a universal power supply with an external switch
          and may, therefore, be used worldwide.  Additionally, there are no
          setup switches.
          PROBLEM DETERMINATION:  If a failure is found at initial
          installation, an instruction will appear on the screen.  If the test
          is successfully completed, the system attempts to load an operating
          system from the A drive.  If an operating system is not found, the
          system attempts to load one from the C fixed disk drive.  If an
          operating system is not found, the user will be prompted to insert a
          diskette via an icon.  A final default is provided through the use of
          a ROM-loaded BASIC interpreter as explained in the GUIDE TO
          OPERATIONS.
                 The troubleshooting procedures consist of a power-on self
          test, diagnostic tests, and easy-to-follow troubleshooting charts
          designed to assist the user in isolating a defective machine element.
          The failing element can then be replaced or repaired under existing
          warranty provisions.

          DESCRIPTION
                 The new models of the Personal System/2 Model 70 family, the
          8570-061 and the 8570-A61, offer a new combination of 20MHz or 25MHz
          80386 processor speed and 60MB fixed disk capacity.  The system
          features a 80386 microprocessor and 2MB of high speed memory
          expandable to 16MB with memory options.
                 The 8570 comes standard with:
          o   1.44MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive
          o   Fixed disk drive with integrated controller
          o   Keyboard port
          o   Pointing device port
          o   Serial/asynchronous port
          o   Parallel port
          o   Video Graphics Array (VGA) port
          o   Three I/O slots
          o   Keyboard.
                 The VGA port supports graphics and text modes including
          640 x 480 graphics, 320 x 200 graphics in 256 colors, and 720 x 400
          text, and yet maintains compatibility with Color Graphics Adapter
          (CGA) and Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) modes.
                 The fixed disk drive has a capacity of 60MB.  The fixed disk
          controller is integrated with the drive.

                 The system has two levels of BIOS that total 128KB.  The
          Compatibility BIOS (CBIOS) with memory addressability of up to 1MB
          provides compatible support for current application programs.  An
          additional version of BIOS, Advanced BIOS (ABIOS) provides support
          for multi-tasking operating systems and has extended memory
          addressability up to 16MB.
                 The high level of feature integration on the system board
          reduces the requirement for optional adapters.  Memory on the system
          board can be expanded to 6MB (8570-061) or 8MB (8570-A61).  The
          optional 80387 Math Co-Processor provides enhanced performance in
          arithmetic calculations.  In addition, the system is designed for
          tool-free installation and includes security features in BIOS/CMOS
          and an external keylock.
                 The 486/25 Power Platform is an optional upgrade kit for the
          8570-A61.  It significantly increases performance by replacing the
          25MHz 80386 microprocessor with a 25MHz i486 (1) microprocessor.
