  First, to determine how many licenses you are set for use the WRKLICINF 
and look for 5769-XW1.

  Second, you can install any part of Client Access EXCEPT 5250 emulation and
File Transfer without a license.

  Third, your entire AS/400 is stored in the IFS so trust me, it's there!  In
order to access it from PC's you must do either of: Install base CA and the the
IFS will become mappable from there (not recommended) or for V4R2 and up
configure the NetServer (through operations navigator) and then it is available
to all Win9x/NT/OS/2 users through standard MS networking.

  Fourth: The Opeartion manager you refer to is Operations Navigator.  It is 
of Client Access for Windows9x/NT.  If you are using strictly TCP/IP then I
recommend the Client Access Express version (V4R4).  It DOES NOT require a

  Finally, Installing V3R2 or V4R4 of Client Access on a PC is a breeze (or at
least that's my opinion after 12412453.5 installs-yah that .5 was trouble) 
Before starting, make sure that you can PING your AS/400 by name.  Next insert
the CD and run the Setup program.  Choose the Custom install so that you can
select the componants you want (note that the default for Operations Navigator 
a subset only so check out the details there).  After that is done install the
latest service pack available at: http://www.as400.ibm.com/clientaccess/casp.htm
(no need to reboot between the initial install and the SP).  When you run Ops 
for the first time it will ask for you system name and then a userID and 
and you are cookin!
