RE: OS 400 upgrade



fixed

Pete,

I would add to this a reminder that the CUM's are not shipping by default
with your PID CD's for the release upgrade anymore.  ALOT of people are
still used to getting their CUM's with the PID... You have to order your
CUM's seperate...  and YOU have to order them...
