As I'm the only user, I can't claim that its use is that serious, though I have no problems with it. I did wonder if it might be a half way house in the disk space issue discussed recently. Run the web server on the 400, but have static content served up via an NFS mount on the 400 from a RAIDed Linux (or *BSD) server box. Cheap disk & low cost hardware and the NFS share can be backed up from the AS/400. At least the NFS shares are always there, which is more than I can say for the magical NetServer shares which seem to vanish and reappear with unfortunate regularity.
