Here's part of a response that I received from a friend of mine when I 
asked him about the NT server that they are installing at the company 
that he works at.   He is the Network Admin there..


  Right now the Data Warehouse project is just a dream.  They
  really do not even know what they are going to do with it.
  I was just told to purchase a big, beefy server with a large disk
  sub-system on it that will support NT and get it set up.  I did
  that and it is now ready to go.  The server will run NT 4.0 and
  SQL 6.5.  Both with Service Patch 3 installed.  That is basically
  where it sits today.
     
  I know that they do want to communicate back and forth with the
  400 but am not really sure just how they want to do that yet.
     
  This is not the ideal situation, and if I had the opportunity,
  I would redo all of the AS/400 communications to the LAN.

  Just Imagine... XXXXXXXXXXXX (company name removed by me) buying
  into a product that they have no idea what to do with yet.....
  That never happens!!
     
FWIW
