Simple answer - don't do it - it will make you go blind !

More complicated answer.  Check the Y2K issues of Midrange Computing and
News/400.  Midrange also have a White Paper on Y2K.  All of these provide
valuable information as does Rochester's Y2K web site (which contains the text
of some of the articles).  In particular check out
http://www.softmall.ibm.com:80/as400/y2sysdat.html which covers AS/400 System
Date changes.

Summary of long answer - don't do it - it will make you go blind ! - buy a new
workbench system for your Y2K testing and use it as a development box, Domino
server, etc. when you are done.  Alternatively take up the option to do a short
term system rental.  Everyone I know who did the system date change wishes they
