o IBM <http://www.ibm.com> <http://www.pc.ibm.com> (PC Company) <http://ps.boulder.ibm.com> (a really good link for OS/2 install and update info) <ftp://ftp.pc.ibm.com>

Flash BIOS upgrades for the IBM ValuePoints are in /pub/valuepnt/.

o Microsoft

<ftp://ftp.microsoft.com> <http://www.microsoft.com>

General Windows and DOS updates, fixes and Microsoft Knowledge Base articles can be found on the Microsoft FTP site. Unfortunately, the structure of this site can hardly be called intuitive (which, some would argue, is characteristic of Microsoft products in general). The WWW site allows searches in the Knowledge Base, which is much more useful.
