Okay.

Can I safely assume that you already know how to make the savf on the
AS/400?

This procedure assumes that you're either running Windows with it's
built-in MS-DOS prompt FTP client, or that you're running FreeBSD, Linux,
or similar UNIX-like system with its built-in command prompt FTP client

To download savf:
---------------------------------
1) from your ms-dos prompt, type:    ftp AS400-NAME-HERE
2) type in the user name & password.
3) Switch to binary mode by typing:  binary 
4) download your savefile:           get LIBRARY/FILENAME PCFILE.SAVF
5) log off the FTP server:           quit

To upload savf:
---------------------------------
1) at the ms-dos prompt, type:         ftp AS400-NAME-HERE
2) type in the user name & password.
3) Switch to binary mode by typing:    binary
4) Create a save file to store result: quote rcmd CRTSAVF LIBRARY/FILENAME
5) Upload the savf:                    put PCFILE.SAVF LIBRARY/FILENAME
6) Log off the FTP server:             quit

(step #4 could be done on the AS/400 ahead of time, as well)
