 There is no hardware problem with the AS/400  & Y2K. It is all software
related from an MIS view.
As a total  view it is a larger than normal  business problem.

I think you are asking , if  my system cannot support the  latest  version
of OS400 can it be Y2k ready?

Releases of OS400  have PTFs to  make them  Y2K  ready; however;  you are
always better off with the most current release V3R7  its equivalent or
better,   At lower levels you will  experience some  functional  losses and
it might just be a bit ore complex to  get your applications Y2K  compliant
with the OS400 services and latest compiler functions/services.

Now that is both good news and bad news  depending on your  short and long
term resource plans both technical and financial.

Glenn
