questions:
1.  Do you know what ISP will allow you to use a SLIP account.  It is my
understanding that (at least at v3r7) you can only use SLIP not PPP.  If
your ISP has a POP in the metro Atlanta area I'd like to know who they are.
2.  What IP address is assigned to your AS400? Don't you get dynamiclly
assigned an IP address each time you dial the ISP??"

I do you SLIP connection.  It is a local New England ISP.  My IP address
was assigned by my ISP.  I use the same IP address for the 400.  However,
if I'm on a boat in Marblehead Harbor with my laptop or on Siesta Beach, I
use Compurserve or AOL.  Then they give me a IP at random.  Hope this
answers your questions.  Have a good weekend.
