License keys from IBM would NOT match 3. QGPL objects that belong to LPPs 4. QUSRSYS objects that belong to LPPs 5. USRPRF changes One reason the CISC to RISC is done the way it is done is because of those objects. I would NOT recommend this method. I average installing release of OS/400 about 50 times and find when you use short cuts one runs into problems. Peter O'Connor PAE Inc. 7 Riverway Rd.
