What I remember (granted, getting old LOL) was that someone had 3.0 
starting but then couldn't do much beyond that. Not aware that anyone 
every got it working (beyond a mere bootup) on 3.1 or Enhancded mode due 
to memory manager issues.

Well, yes, but those were as you stated just OEM versions from M$, with 
no IBM specifics beyond what any other OEM had, unlike the later 
versions of PC-DOS. Can't see in PC-DOS 5.02 anything different but the 
renamed IBMBIO.COM and IBMDOS.COM either...
