Crap! AS/400 info needed.


I just realized I have a research paper due tomorrow on the AS/400. I have to give general info on, as well as cover my topic (everybody in the class has a topic regarding the AS/400 they need to cover)..

So, my topic is "Describe types of system software available on an AS/400". I've done some googling, and haven't found jack - I've gotten some basic stuff on the AS/400, but more would be great.

Our teacher doesn't even know anything about the AS/400. Actually, the college I attend has a fairly poor computer program, but it is slowly improving. How poor is it? I'm one of 2, MAYBE 3 people who actually use Linux - one of those people is our sysadmin - and the 3rd claims he does, but I wonder sometimes.. Our instructor knows mostly networking and databases, but it's all on the Windows side of things. Any time we have Linux related stuff, I teach it. :/

Anyway, if you could just provide me with some information, I'd appreciate it. I'm going to be doing some more googling while I write the intro stuff for the paper. It's only 5 pages, so it's not like it's a huge deal to write (We write one every 2 weeks - this is an Advanced Network Administration class). I'm normally not a slacker on my school work like this, but it completely slipped my mind :/

Well, it's now called iSeries (http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/) and is an IBM program. Lots of free AS400 software around and even has at least one dedicated site.

Hope this helps kick it off.

Heh, too late. Turned the paper in a few hours ago, no biggy though - I got enough info myself to write it. Only took about an hour to write.

I get so sick of writing papers for this class. I realize I'll end up having to write some papers for proposals, but not like this..

Proposal papers are easier - mostly you tend to grab the last one and use it as a template as a lot of it will carry over. In fact, any business document is usually cribbed off it's predecessor - speeches, letters, etc.

Good luck with your paper.
