Firstly, thanks to Rob Berendt, Carl Galgano, and Pat Barber.  Also, Glenn 
Ericson who responded privately.

I've answered as many of your questions as I can here:

First, Rob's -

>There are multiple ways of doing this.  I am going to assume that you are 
really new to the AS/400 so I'll start with some basics.

Yes, I've only had this machine under my care for a month and I've never 
seen one before this :-p.  Thank you very much for including the commands.

>First, what version of the Operating System are you running?  One way to 
tell is to type in the command DSPPTF.  The version of the OS >will be at 
the top of the screen.

The command worked but I didn't see anything that resembled a version 
number, there were some numbers in a PTF column, MF02455 release V2R1M0, 
MF02398 rel V2R1Mo, MF02367 rel V2R1M0, MF00015 V2R1M0.

>Do you have Client Access or PC Support loaded on your system?  To check 
use the command DSPSFWRSC.  The resource ID will begin >with four numbers 
and then two letters, then a number.  For example 5763XD1.  Look for stuff 
that has an X in position 5.
       - I've got AJSLX01  *BASE  *CODE

>Do you have TCP/IP loaded on your system?  To check use the command 
DSPSFWRSC and look for a resource ID that begins with four >numbers and 
ends with TC1.  - None.

>Do you want to do this remote or local?  - Local.

>To check for Ethernet or Token Ring use the command WRKHDWRSC   *CMN  - 
This gave me 2507 and 6152 (5 times).

>To check for twinax use the command WRKHDWRSC  *LWS - This gave me 6140 (3 

And then Pat's -

1. What model As/400 ..... dspsysval qmodel            -  B10

2. What sort of communications you have on 400 & what modem   - none that I 
know of, I wanted to know if I could upgrade the machine to make this 
possible for a reasonable cost.

3. What version of Os/400    ... wrklicpgm  VxRx    - This gave me: 
 Procedure not found

4. What is your PC running   OS/2, W/95 , W/98 etc,etc   - I have a choice 
of machines with NT or W95

5. Do you have any PC's attached to 400 now ? - Nope

6. Do you have an Ethernet adapter ?  - I hope the above information will 
answer this question.

Thanks a lot!
