   Wouldn't it be nice if we could control the service pack from some
type of Client Access window on the AS/400.  With the ability to say,
don't let this new service pack be available to everyone yet. Only make
these 4 PCs (or userids) get this service pack. All others get the
previous service pack (that has been tested).  Then once the 4 PCs have
verified there are no problems, release the service pack to all.

   Hopes, Dreams, Wishes....
