We have Sametime 3.1 running on Domino 6.5 with no difficulties, although 
we're a relatively small shop and don't put either Sametime or Domino 
through its paces like a larger shop would.

Re: Where's it at - iSeries Lotus IM setup.

IBM Lotus had a special that any customer with active maintenance
agreements were entitled to 20 user licenses of IBM Lotus Instant
Messaging / Web Conferencing (Sametime) and that is what they have.

I will have to talk to their supplier on the Sametime server software
since the entitlement certificate has been delivered but no Sametime
CDs. Or just download from the Passport site.

I have the 6.5 CDs but remember that somewhere it was recommend to skip
to 6.5.1 for some reason. If there isn't a compelling reason to skip I
might just setup everything as 6.5 until it all can go to 6.5.1 safely.
