They're trying to get a couple of grand out of it for resale. 

I've told them that i doubt they will get that much, but that i
would check around.  

I'd love to take it home and give it a shot, but i'll likely be
moving out of the country soon and the last thing i need is
another computer that i need a forklift to move.  Besides, i've
got two smaller AS/400s (CISC i believe) already at home that
i've never put together and booted up.  I don't know much about
OS/400 nor the hardware, only the basic concepts of LPAR and so

If i thought i could sell the parts, i'd buy it for a grand or so
and part it out, but the market doesn't look full of buyers and
i don't want to sit on parts for a year, so i'll leave it as
their problem.
