    Yep !!  But wait it get's better.

        Now they send you a CD with VA 3.5.5 with the AS/400 product order.
But, don't even try and use it with out the fix paks from the FTP site,
almost as much code as is on the CD.  An don't use long path names because
everything will file if you use say "\Program Files\Ibmcpp" and the registry
is toast as well.

        Additionally, don't install the 400 code with out the Mandatory
PTF's or you are in more trouble.

        An lastly don't try and read the directions,  It will never
work.....    :-)
