And that is the same as using the download director to download the images
to the D drive, it downloads everything in nice images for the virtual
catalog. I believe what Don is after is the java based app that verifies
each PTF and only downloads those required by the particular system.
Don, if you have enought space on the i system i would download either by
director or ftp the entire images.

When you go to Fix Central there is an option to use FTP. Select that.
After awhile you will get an email which looks something like:
page after page
Select this method only if you will be using image catalogs.
In the example below, the directory is named "fixes".
You must store the files in a path within the "root" (/)
directory in IFS.
ftp ""

While it says "OS/400" it also works on IBM i.

If you see commands like:
ftp> binary
ftp> get CUME710_1.bin
ftp> get CUME710_2.bin
simply replace the individual "get" commands with
mget *.bin
