Boot D-side on to an M5 I_BASE_01 disc and install it. As Al alluded to, slipping the SLIC. I wouldn't think it to be necessary unless there's some feature you require. The PTF ordering screen does get annoying though, doesn't it? -- Justin C.

Then how do you put it on? My system keeps downloading new PTF's that it cannot apply because we are not at m5. I thought you were upgraded automatically thru the last Cume or two.

James, V5R3M5 will work just fine on 'any' Power 5 (5xx) models. You can even put on selected 8xx (not all) and it will be fine. Now the 520+ requires M5 if you want to run V5R3 on it. -- This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
