I'm not Peter ... <g>.  However, you can connect your AS/400
to the Internet for around $200 (UUNET ISP which gives you
a full Class-C network) plus telco charges per month.  AIMS
ISDN will run in the neighborhood of around $36/month (ISP)
plus $77/month (telco) unlimited ... BTW, we still had to
purchase router/modem/firewall (~$1200) ... but that is the
latest experience (we are just getting ISDN so the charges
are current).  Hope this helps.
