Hi, James:

In addition to your old IBM BookManager Library CDs for OS/400, you can also find (most of) those .BOO files here:

Or you can download Adobe Acrobat .pdf versions of IBM OS/400 manuals ...

V4R5:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/online/V4R5PDF.HTM

And for more recent releases of OS/400 and i5/OS, here:

then click on the "_Primtable PDFs and manuals_" link that takes you to:

V5R4:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp
then click on the "_Primtable PDFs and manuals_" link that takes you to:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/topic/pdf_table/table/launcher.htm
V6R1:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v6r1m0/index.jsp
then click on the "_i5/OS PDF files and manuals_" link that takes you to:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v6r1m0topic/pdftable/pdftable.htm
V7R1:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v7r1m0/index.jsp
then click on the "_PDF files and manuals_" link that takes you to:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v7r1m0topic/pdftable/pdftable.htm

Since this is all accessible from any web browser, it should work from Mac OS ... *;-)*

Hope that helps,

Finally got my Mac Mini at work. Finally some light at the end of the
long, dark, tunnel of having to deal with WinDoze on a daily basis.

But over the weekend, I realized that there are a whole lot of manuals
that I access regularly, that (for my purposes) only exist on the
Softcopy CD.

And I think everybody here already knows my opinion of the
Disinformation Center.

While there's always the alternative of generating PDFs of the books I
actually use, it would be nice to be able to access the softcopy CD
directly, just in case I need to look up something in a volume I
didn't think to convert.
