Mine doesn't require it, but it can be used (thanks to Albarsa
for pointing this out, and my tech guy agrees.)

I don't understand any site with a cd reader on their As/400 can
read these cds, whether they use LODRUN or RSTLIB/RSTOBJ

I'm not following you.

it's what I thought I meant, but I was wrong. All LODRUN does is
load a program from the Cd and run it, and that program copies
the files from the CD.

I think I misunderstood my tech guy, to a degree, as I seiad the
conversation was in 1998. His point then (and now) is that
security conscious people will generally want to reste the
libraries themselves, rather than using ann untested vendor
program.

Some of you disagree.
