Charles, the original question in this thread was

"Is it really true that a '*Program* *Conversion*' is NOT necessary if you
are upgrading to Power6 hardware before going to *V6R1*?"

Which I read as "Can I go to Power6 with V5R4M5?" and that is the question I
answered.

Ken... simply answer is YES.

Simple perhaps, but also WRONG.

an upgrade to v6r1 still requires program conversion even if you're
already running power 6 hardware.

"Programs have a new format on V6R1. Therefore, programs that were
created for earlier
releases must be converted on V6R1 (or a later release) before they
can run. Similarly,
programs created on V6R1 or later releases must be converted before
they can run on V5R4
or an earlier release."
