No, it was the other way round. The S38 had been out for a while when my 
employer got his first S/36 right after they were released. I don't recall S36 
emulation on the 38. There was a S/34 to S/38 conversion tool though. The 
AS/400 had S/36 emulation from day one. It was a big deal at the time, with 
much hoopla about how thoroughly beta sites had tested the 36EE for consistency 
with the "real" S/36.
