RE: V3R1 to V4R2



fixed



Uh, Neil, last I checked you could migrate from any release to V4R2...

Step 1.  SAVLIB....
Step 2.   RSTLIB....
Step 3.  Fireup Chessmaster 5500 on Laptop, cuz it's the only thing
        available...
Step 4.  Order more DASD and a faster tape drive

Too good to pass up that one....:)

:)  ( I can see the flame mail now...:)
