>>Can one put an ethernet card in an AS/400 and just attach the AS/400 to
the LAN, like it was any other LAN device, without needing a server?  (I
am trying to figure out if, and why,  one would need to install an NT
server in order to access an AS/400.)<<


        Yes, you don't need an NT, Novell, or any other kind of server to
do so.  Having the PC world available makes the dial-up a little nicer as
encrypted communications are available and you're using something native on
the PC world to establish a link that you can use to talk  with the AS/400
or PC world.
