Looking for a 80286 or 386 to purchase? Want to build run with some retro DOS on the 286, then Windows 3.11 on the 386 :) Let me know if you know of anyone selling!

You based in JHB? Can probably help you with bits and pieces and there are enough other people who can help.

If you join the South African Vintage Computing group on FB, you'll get a lot of help, support and bits and pieces there.

Sounds like fun, go for it!
*EDIT* what Jannie says.
I wonder how many 286s with those dips and 1Mb RAM are floating around. Let us know how it goes. Hope you get VGA.

Very true! Something awesome about running the old games on the actual old PC instead of an emulator.
