If the question is this basic your friends (and you) are going to need an
understanding of the difference between multi user business database
applications and desktop applications.  It sounds like some of them may not
even understand whether they're using a stand-alone application such as Word
or a PC-based front-end linking to an enterprise application on a (Unix, NT,
AS/400...) server.  I'd try to understand that before getting into a book of
AS/400 basics.
