If he has no PeeCee or PowerMac (that is able to run NetBSD) like me? 
If he has an other machine that is alrady runing AIX? 
If he hasn't seen NetBSD bevore? 
Maybe dual boot it with AIX? 
I didn't say that he has to run NetSBD, I just wanted to point to an
additional option besides AIX (and maybe Linux).

Sure. If that is his one and only RS/6000, no question, it has to run
