Dont bother with the AS/400 - if it didnt come with OS/400, you will
find it *imposible* to get for the older CISC-based boxes.  For the
PPC-based machines, its easier, but still hard.  I had a small 
AS/400 model 200 box, and ended up almost giving it away just to get
rid of it after spending 3 weeks trying to get an OS.

Sad, but true.
