See my additions to the right of each faeture....Double check V5R1 HW supported list at http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/support/planning/v5r1hardware.html -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Tuesday, January 29, 2002 7:18 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Help with config This is a multipart message in MIME format. -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] One of our customers has a 720 v4r5, and he's considering upgrading to an 820 v5r1. The customer has 2 modems, and 4 tape drives. I was handed a printout of some of the hardware and asked which are the modem-related stuff, and which are tape-related. I don't know but know for sure that someone on this list does. The 4 tape drives are: TAP01 - 6381-001 TAP02 - 9348-002 TAP03 - 9343-002 TAP04 - 3570-C01 I forget what the modem model- types are, but nothing fancy. Here's some of what they handed me on the printouts: Stuff on the current 720: Product Description YOU DIDN'T GIVE QTYs 0348 V.24/EIA232 20-FT PCI CABLE SDLC/BSC/?? 19.2 of slower 0353 V.35 20-FT PCI CABLE SDLC/BSC/??

What's missing from it?
