Jerry;

        Your 5250 emulator would have to 'slimmer'. It's missing the
AS/400 DLLs to support the many other CA/400 functions besides 5250.
Many users can be happy with only 5250, but I would be lost without
ODBC, DataQs, and the like. My client/server applications require more
than 5250 to acheive the integration. I can't imagine not having the
'shared folders' functions either. The AS/400 is a file server, not just
a workstation server.
