I tried, gave up, and sold my AS/400 system about two years ago.
I had one of the older non-PowerPC based units (but new enough that it
was black). IBM refused to even acknowledge its existence, and when I
tried to go through official channels to see about prices on the OS for
it, all I got was "It came with an OS, but the seller wasnt licensed to
sell you the OS with the hardware, sorry."
