Rob, At Lotusphere IBM talked about the December announce of an eight port PCI Fax card for the AS/400 as a replacement for the old cards, I hink they are using Brooktrouts but do not remember for sure! As DFS/400 is supposed to be available in Feburary if I mismember correctly, however you will still need the Not Trustworthy product to handle the rendering process even for DFS/400. I can cross check some notes Thursday if you would like... Jeffrey M. Silberberg CompuDesigns, Inc.
