This is NOT a good idea.  It could cause software keys to expire, among other
nastiness.  There are many many things that could be screwed up by changing the
system date even if all of the software is Y2K safe.  I think the AS/400 Y2K
web pages have information on what to beware of.  The problems this causes are
one of the reasons we recommend doing your Y2K work (or at least the testing)
on a separate machine - that way you can do a scratch install afterwards!
