Woah!  What's IBM doing now?  I have all the books on the system for V3R1M0
when they still came on paper.  Then they give me this CD and say, use this now.
So I pop the CD into a PC and hate the interface, but use it.

We upgrade our AS/400 and I stick the Softcopy on our DADS and all is happy.
Now they're taking the book OUT of the Softcopy?  And they are ONLY available


Entire book moved to
                                      Information center.

                                      Starting at V4R4, the book is
                                      no longer available in the
                                      Softcopy Library, Online
                                      Library, or orderable.

What about the people who don't use the internet?  Okay, they are far and few
between, but still...

IBM has more bureaucracy and red tape than the U.S. government!
