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.

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
