Hi André,
One internal disk could be enough, if you'd only install basic functionality 
... ;-)
Frankly, I would just try to remove that failing disk from configuration, then 
re-install V3R2 from tape. (Manual IPL from D, with the first tape in the drive)
You will have to "replace" (or install) the LIC as well and then you will see 
how
far you can get with a 1 GB drive ...
To remove that defective drive you'll have to go to "work with disk drives" 
when you got
into DST with QSECOFR/QSECOFR you should see _all_ options to get in touch with 
the
drives / ASP config and so on.
I remember OS/400 V3R2 was on three 525 MB Tapes that's roughly 1,5 Gb in 
summary, if
all the tapes were completely used. So another 1 GB drive would be helpful for 
some
practical work with that machine.
Where are you situated ? Maybe we can get in contact, so I can help you out ?
As far as I know, you can have a 6601 from a broker in germany for about 300 
DEM,
I suggest you got your F04 like I got mine ("just like that" and for the same 
purposes)
still 300 DEM seems not that much to me.
I also have some used parts "lying around" from other AS/400 machines ...

HTH, Philipp Rusch
