I ran into the exact same thing when trying to dig for myself.
I'm on the line with support right now.

I started out at System Reference Code list at
Click on C. This went to C5xx. It was suggested that I use the IPL SRC
finder. I did so and pasted in the whole C500E200. From there I saw
C5xx xxxx LIC system hardware initialization
If I use the IBM search box way up at the top right and searched for
C500E200 I got nothing. Google only returned the posts from this thread
from the archives. (I'll ignore the references to the Spice Girls.)
There is a link in the System Hardware Information at
However that had the same generic information as the IPL SRC finder had.
Why doesn't IBM tell us what the other numbers mean?
