I recently bought a 560e for £10 in a charity shop and wanted to wipe the hard drive and install ibm os/2 on it as it is currently running windoes 3.1 for some reason. Does anyone know how i could install this OS as the laptop doesn't have a cd drive, floppy drive or even a usb port.

You can look for the dock to that unit that has a CDROM built in. No idea if you can netboot an OS/2 install on another machine (server).
