I think what I was really asking a rhetorical question.  It just dawned on 
me that one can buy an AS/400, and a router, add some cabling and NICs and 
have a complete LAN ready to connect Network Stations, Terminals, Macs, 
iMacs, Windows machines, OS/2, Linux, and the internet.  One does not have 
to install an Apache, NT, OS/2, or other server; the AS/400 is finally 
ready to connect to the non-AS/400 world without all sorts of conversion 
and translation aids?

don't you do that at goddard now?  is there a specific thing you're
wanting to do? what did you mean by file sharing?  shared folders have
been around using client access (formerly pc support), since the 36
days.
