I have just got a couple of these out of the dumpster, I had to arrange palletised shipping for these monoliths. I was warned they were heavy but I wasn't expecting well, rs6000 heavy. 

The boot menus are far from intuitive, I have actually had to rtfm. 

I am yet to get an OS to boot on these machines. I emailed IBM regarding a license to do research with, the idea is, as hardware has become less diversified with the x86 becoming more ubiquitous, malware has become equally prevailant. 

Any OS recommendations aside AIX? 

Anyone willing to ship me a paper manual? Happy to cover shipping plus a tip.
