Debbie,

Stuart's suggestion(s) are good.  I do recommend ordering the SF98xxx 
for your version of software (SF98430 SF98440 or whatever).  However, 
to save you some ease of ordering you don't have to order each of the 
hiper PTF's recommended individually.  After you put on the cum, you 
can put on the hiper CD.  To order the hiper CD check out:
http://as400service.rochester.ibm.com/supporthome.nsf/Document/10000031

VRM     hiper media
440     SF99095
430     SF99092
420     SF99090
410     SF99091
370     SF99094
320     SF99093

Your end user training doesn't yet include AS/400 installs, does it? ;)

Debbie,

The PSP's stand for Preventative Service Planning.  Ordering these will send
you documentation on all AS400 problems by machine type, any ptf's in error,
and stuff like that.  It won't send you the ptf's themselves.  It's a good
idea (although laborious) to go through the list and identify those problems
that might apply to your system, then either order the individual ptf's or
get more info about the problem.  I believe IBM do a faxback service that
uses a copy of your system config & ptf list to sort the 'wheat from the
chaff' - this may be a better option but i have no experience of it.
SF98xxx is the list of software 'bugs'
MF98xxx is the list of hardware 'bugs'
SF99xxx is the cumulative PTF (hardware & software).

Best bet to understand what the PSP's are is to order them via ECS.  The
documentation is stored in a member of QGPL/QAPZCOVER.

Feel free to holler if you need any more help.

Regards,
Stuart
