Got a Tecra 520CDT for free. Wow, it's even got a decent battery and power supply. But I
don't have manuals, CD or anything else it may have sold with new.

1. How do I get into the BIOS settings?

2. Does anybody distribute manuals or CD for Tecra 520CDT?

3. I'd like an external floppy for it. After reading everything I can find it seems I
need an external floppy caddy PA2611U which accepts an FDDSA07 drive or FDDSA08 drive.
Which of these drives is compatible with the Tecra 520CDT?

All of the Toshiba external floppies are pretty much compatable with
each other for external use. Some of them can also be plugged in to
replace the CD for internal use, for that purpose, there are at least
two physically different variants, but for external use, that doesn't
matter, if you have a drive and matching caddy.

You should be able to find the manuals and drivers (Windows 98) for this
on the Toshiba web site.

Bios access is that same as any other Toshiba, hold down the escape key
while turning on power and don't let it up until you see the message,
then press the indicated function key.
