Ha! Now you've done it. You piqued the interest of a young Padawan :)

Okay I got as far as booting Hercules, and it seems to pick up all the  
tapes and start up. The first part of the ReadMe that comes with
Bob Abeles VM/370 R6 distro requires you to open a new terminal and  
'telnet localhost 3270' then on the Herc type 'ipl 580' (presumably  
this connects the telnet session??). I get the telnet to connect but  
on trying 'ipl 580' (Enter) I get:

HHCCP029E ESA/390 mode IPL failed: CSW status=0020
            Sense=00000000 00C00300 00000000 00800100 010000FF FF000000

Of course, the error codes mean nothing to me. Just wondered if you'd  
run over this issue. I'm also using OS X 10.5 Intel.

This is fun... no really!
