Art,

I agree absolutely about GO ASSIST for a Full System Save, but wouldn't it
be great if IBM added one little feature - the ability to schedule it 3 or 4
days in advance? I've been begging for this so that I can advise customers
to use it on Sunday Nights, so that when they come in on Monday morning,
"voila!", ready, pop the tapes in storage, away you go!

Ah, in the ideal world ......
