Yes.  But if your time frame is 6 months away, IBM is being very open about
the fact that V4R2 will be out by then, with native notes.  The FSIOP may
not scale well enough for your future requirements.

No.  The IBMer was referring to native notes, which is likely what you want.

This is a configuration issue.  You need to talk to whomever you source
your hardware from.  This week happens to be a big hardware week for IBM,
with everybody ordering 640s and 650 before the Friday deadline for this
year delivery.  I suspect you should wait for next week to ask this.  One
of the problems that IBM is facing is that price of the 600 is so cheap,
that there's not enough profit in it to sell it.
>4- Web address with information concerning integration between AS/400 and NT

This is not announced, but is speculated for V4R2 timeframe.

>5- Web address with information concerning ODBC for DB2/400.

Not sure

>6- Web address concerning cabling installation with AS/400.

Not sure

Assuming that the 3486s are one address only, you can run 7 on each cable.
