The only 'gotcha' I got from going to V4R1 to V4R3 was that the
tcp/ip server programs (telnet, ftp,...,etc.) were reset to AUTOSTART(*NO).
I think that would have happened going from V4R2 as well.

Roger, 

No truth to those statements at all.  You CD will upgrade from 3.7, 4.1, or
4.2 with no issues.

Actually, the 4.3 upgrade is just another painless event.  I did not think
that OS/400 could get any easier, but they proved me wrong again.

We just tried to order an upgrade to V4R3 from our Value Added Reseller,
and they told us that IBM's records had us at V4R2.  Well, we are on
V4R1 but IBM did send us V4R2 awhile ago and we never had the time to
load it.  Anyway, the VAR told us that we would have to upgrade to V4R2
before we could get the upgrade to V4R3.  They said this was because
once IBM ships you software for an upgrade they delete the information
of your previous version... and so they could not provide an upgrade
from V4R1 to V4R3 for us.

Is there any credibility to these statements?
