Thanks, Mike...! But... aaaaaaaargh...:-( ! And then again, I've heard folks say they had few, if any problems...?!? Right...? Is there any way of knowing, in advance, if I have the set up that's gonna trigger all this ackus-morackas (sp? ;-)... I have to have a decent idea how long this is gonna take.. and I doubt if the time-estimates they give (I'm assuming they give, as haven't looked at it, yet) are NOT gonna include time for this kinda stuff. jt | -----Original Message----- | From: email@example.com | [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Mike Shaw | Sent: Saturday, December 15, 2001 12:56 PM | To: email@example.com | Subject: Re: V5R1 Lic Pgm install failures | | | Larry, | | I just did a V4R4 to V5R1 on a Model 720 on Thursday.
