I changed the picture title, so hopefully that will fall off in a couple of
days. I don't want IBM sending the sharks after me when I'm just playing
around and trying to learn about their products to be a better sysadmin.

Actually what I downloaded was preconfigured with a Hercules config file;
someone else did all the heavy lifting already.
If they offered an "eval" version of z/OS, I'd go after it in a heartbeat,
even if it cost $100. They offer z/VM 5.3 as an eval, but there's a couple
bits in Hercules that have to be fixed before it will run (and it requires
3G of RAM minimum).
