I got one too.  The cover letter says NIMDA/400.  Should I install it?

Seriously, we're subscribed to the Alert service, but my Sys Admin and I
can't recall ever receiving anything other than electronic PTF's.  I
wouldn't have reservations about installing anything though.  We just review
the notes and install everything we get.  I've rarely been burned on OS/400
PTF's.  My Unix admin is quite tentative about OS patches -- but that's
another story.
