If my memory serves me right, QUSRSYS and QHLPSYS first showed up in 
1988 on the AS/400.  They were not present on the S/38.  We have moved 
both libraries to the bottom of the user portion of the library list 
for security reasons.  Some third party software has difficulties with 
this, especially in the installation routines.  They replace the user 
portion of the library list and assume that QUSRSYS and QHLPSYS are in 
the system portion of the library list.  As long as you are aware of 
this and investigate before running the installation you should not 
have any problems.

Regards,
Stan

I believe that these libraries are relatively recent 
additions-sometime
since 1980 <g>-and may not show up in discussions that are a few years 
old.
When was Michael Otey's book published?
