If it's the S/36 ENVIRONMENT the files will usually be found in library
QS36F (unless someone altered the default S/36EE file library - check
with command DSPS36 and look at S/36 Environment Variables).

If it's the S/36 MACHINE you are running (ie. SSP is running as a
'guest' operating system - try CFGM36 and see if you see any
configurations) then the files are indeed in a 'virtual machine' (object
type *M36) that you can't access so easily.
Try TRFM36 to see if you can transfer to the S/36 'SSP' machine and
signon.  You can then use the command FILE to look for files.
To get the files to the OS/400 side you can:

- Transfer them with FTS (File Transfer Support)
- Set up a DDM file to access between 'SSP' & 'OS/400'
- Configure S/36 Object Distribution (S/36 SNADS) and send them to the
  'OS/400 machine'
- Do a SAVE command to save the files to tape, then back on the OS/400
  side do a RSTS36F command to restore them to wherever you want.
