If the whole proble is a BPCS key issue then the memory upgrade/DASD is
the only upgrade you could do that would not effect the system model number.
I believe that if you upgrade the interactive feature then you will
change the model number which will mean you need a new set of software
keys, both OS/400 and third party software.
there are lots of place that sell used memory. I have used:
in the past.

Does anybody know of a way to upgrade a 720 within the 720 range without
ending up with no operating system?? I have a client in China who are
maxed out on a 2062 and desperately need more memory and more
interactive capacity. However they missed getting their upgrade order
(to 2063) in under the wire when IBM recently decided not to honour OS
keys when people upgrade old hardware. They can't upgrade to a newer box
because they are stuck with the model their BPCS Key works on, unless
they pay telephone numbers to SSA/Infor for a new key.
