Tom,

  This is exactly that the boys here in Rochester intend for that type
of configuration.  Running the CLPs and RPGIVs is no problem (so long as
they don't have DSPFs!!)  You'll have the ability to run a green screen
for basic system operations (backups, PTFs, work management and the
like) but that's about it.

  You really shouldn't have any problems at all.  If you are just
getting this thing set up I would consider the Apache web server and
Websphere 3.5.  It's a bit more effort up front but that is the
direction IBM is going on the iSeries. Converting now will be lots less
effort than after the thing is in production.
