It shouldn't be necessary to say this, but (effectively) EVERYTHING is IFS on 
the iSeries. It isn't "separate" from user libraries and licensed programs and 
documents and streamfiles and user profiles and everything else that can be 
seen; all of those things are *IN* the IFS.

It just seems to be too often that "the IFS" is written about as if it's 
unrelated to QSYS or QDLS or whatever. By definition from the IFS Introduction 
manual: "The integrated file system is a part of OS/400 that supports stream 
input/output and storage management similar to personal computer and UNIX 
operating systems, while providing an integrating structure over all 
information stored in the AS/400."

"...all information..."

When talking about the IFS, it must be remembered that it covers multiple file 
systems and each one can have different characteristics.

Sorry. I just get nervous when I see this over and over.
