Actually not true. The 236 booted straight up into SSP. OK OK There was a LIC in there but it was hidden and there was no OS/400 available. In fact many failed to realize that the very first RISC machine shipped in the AS/400 line was the model 236. With the 436 you gained the ability to run OS/400 and move SSP to be a guest.

Tommy,

Have you laid hands on this machine? Wasn't there a model like that which
didn't run OS/400 but actually just ran S/36 SSP? And I'm not talking
about environment.

We were migrating from S/36's to AS/400's and in that process we had one
(semi autonomous) plant where the plant manager went to one of these
instead. He's now my boss. Great guy but I thought that move was a bit
odd.
