I've waited 60+ minutes for a 9406-720 to start...it has a lot of
spindles; AS/400s weren't intended to be switched-off.
Kevin: the install is relatively straight-forward from what I
remember, I don't recall any surprises (see the above gallery for a
few screens of my install) - however applying the PTFs can be an
exercise in endurance, especially from a base install since sets of
PTFs required a reboot so after spending a day restarting you might
have completed 6 or so PTF sets.
