Here is a copy of a letter I just received from my freindly neighborhood IBM
Var, (note the capital V in var) Thanks DSI !


October 7, 1999

Dear Customer:

Recently IBM  advised that there are some PTFs which must be applied to the
system software in order for the AS/400 to be fully  Y2K compliant.   Many
of these PTFs, we are told, are not in any of the CUM packages.  This letter
will attempt to explain which PTFs you should apply to your systems.  All of
the APARs mentioned can be found on the following web page, if you care to
look at them in the original:

http://as400service.rochester.ibm.com/supporthome.nsf/Document/10000035

If you do not see your version and release listed,  click on :  All Info
APARs by Release

YEAR 2000 GROUP PTFs:
For Version 3.7 through Version 4.4, please submit the following command
through ECS:

SNDPTFORD PTFID((SF99200)) DELIVERY(*ANY)

You will receive all the PTFs that are described in the following APARs
(which you can retrieve at the web site noted above):

And the specific PTF information can be found in:
V3R2                     II11534
