Just today found a new book:

	The Indispensable PC Hardware Book
	Hans-Peter Messmer
	ISBN: 0-201-62424-9

	Cost me 30 pound (55 dollars ?)

I think at first skim it is excellent, and covers things very well,
including (at last) a "Programming the PS/2 Mouse by ports"
section. etc. No 16550, but almost everything else...

Quite nice overall,
