Another solution is possible if you have another RS/6000. You could set up
the extra machine as a NIM server and use the J50 as the mksysb source. With
the proper application of a spot and other NIM components you could handle
the different filesets and drivers quite easily. Then once you get the S70
set up, you could use it as the mksysb source. I used this capability at my
last job, since we had a mix of 42T, 25T, 43P and 37H's.
