Dear AS/400 gurus,

I plan to upgrade my F10 V2R3 within the next 6 month. 
Our main application is an MRP package and the machine configuration is 16MB
RAM & 2GB DASD with 78% utilization. I have around 30 users with 21 IBM 3486
& 3476 and 6 PC attached using eml 5250. I have no problem with response
time and everybody seems happy with the machine reliability.

Then comes new policy from headquarter that all units have to implement
Lotus Notes, and the requirement from some departments that they need to
have their 'own' LAN. they need GUI.

Then what I want to know..;

1- Is it possible if I just upgrade to V3R2 and put FSIOPs for NT & Notes? 
2- If I jump to e-Series, how long will it survive until new box is coming?
IBM'er told me that IPCS for NT is not available until 1Q98, is it true?
3- US$ figure for e-Series model 600 with IPCSs for NT & Notes.

4- Web address with information concerning integration between AS/400 and NT
5- Web address with information concerning ODBC for DB2/400.
6- Web address concerning cabling installation with AS/400.

7- Say, I have 20 3486 in next building, so I install 20 UTP. My question,
is it possible just to install only ONE cable between this building? If it
is, How?



Information, Suggestions, Pro's & Con's will be appreciated,
and please reply privately just in case I violate the Midrange rule.


TIA,



Satria Suryahadi
