Indeed, that and the 5150's PSU wasn't capable of running a hard drive. 
Could have been upgraded, of course, but it just made me wonder if this 
isn't some other IBM product with a similar model number, and not a 5150 at 

Unfortunately while I'm 99% sure that I have at least one of the boards, 
they're over in England with no possibility of shipping them over to me in 
the US in the near future :/
