Dean --

I own a D10.  Bought it last year for $1175.  It is in Processor Group
P10.  When I licensed OS/400 v3r2, it was a $500 one time charge.  I
received a letter dated August 19, 1997 stating that the one time charge
had been increased from $500 to $7,000!!  RPG went from $2,000 to
$2,300.  Application Development Toolset (including SEU) went from
$2,500 to $2,875.

I haven't received any more letters indicating further increases but you
can check with IBM Direct at 800-426-2255.

HTH,
Gary
