I don't follow, what is taking so long?
I re-install 800's and 810's all the time and the boot time with
I_BASE_01 is about the same as with a tape with a savsys
I think there was a guide somewhere in the archives on how to do a
re-save using the go licpgm op40 i think it was.
If you have v5r2+ you should have access to image catalogs, you can
save the resave to that using cd-images and it should work...

Best regards,

Roberto

Hi there!
  Looking at some of the information about creating CD-ROM media for installation, etc.  Yes, in this case specifically CD-ROM and not DVD.  (older hardware in question)
  I've read some interesting guides such as this one: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/html/as400/v4r5/ic2979/info/rzai4.pdf that say you can do a SAVSYS and save the
SLIC and stuff and get it to a CD-ROM, but you have to do some nasty stuff like set up the pointer in CD-ROM block 15 to point to the QCDIML file.  Neat, but all the docs
I can find aren't exactly geared toward bootable SLIC CD's, though they all mention it's possible.
  So, my question is, has anyone managed to get an IPL-able CD-ROM image built?  If so, how?  How exactly does one get the block 15 stuff set up?  Or does that come
automatically in the QDSETMAP file?

Many thanks in advance!!
