All,

  Yes the 436 is gone.  Yes any RISC /400 with V3R7 or better can run an
internal 'virtual S/36.' In fact some models can run up to 7 of them
completely independant one of another.  It does in fact run real SSP and
real S/36 objects. YOU MUST ORDER the features to do this however they
are not standard or free (although I belive a promotion is currently in
place to make them free for a while).
