You seem to be surprized by the contents. When I recently changed my
work notebook (dead screen on the previous one), it took me nearly 6
months to find one which suits my needs (serial, floppy, ...) and to
ensure that everything in it was supported. I've refused several ones
because there was no clear indication that they hosted supported hardware.
So I'm a bit amazed by your reaction, you seem to have bought the first
cheap K8 you saw in a store.

If I were you, I'd return it.

Regards,
Willy
