do an IPL.  Go about doing your testing.  When finished do a scratch
install (IPL from the "D" side).  When you have your operating system
reloaded then take option 21 from the restore menu.  IBM has a really cool
Y2K website up there for the AS/400.  The URL is a follows

With all due respect, a SAVSTG will work, and will save/restore all spooled
files (and other stuff contained in queue objects).

The downside is SAVSTG and the corresponding restore from DST is slower
(given a reasonably fast tape drive (e.g.: not 8mm or slooooooow 1/4"), and
will not rescatter as S/R will.
