     You're right that for this client the NT on IPCS is not on. The client 
     is way too big for that. 
     
     Can Oracle run on the native AS/400 side? I know it would be better to 
     use the DB2 database but that's not the way the vendor's product is 
     written. The customer loves her AS/400, and this particular vendor has 
     a good chance of being selected.

Start by asking them if their intent is to put an IPCS running NT on the 
AS/400 and loading Oracle to the NT server inside the AS/400.
     
Yes, in theory, this can be done.  But if it is a large customer, NT 
(400 or no) will choke on scaling for the Oracle server.
     
Could be just the usual ploy.  Put it up.  It runs so bad.  Hey, how 
about a Unix server?  Never mind it had nothing to do with the 400, just 
NT.
