1. service director: registering-problem


Is it possible to use the service director without registering it with
IBM. We have a machine (43P - 140 Mhz) with no warranty...the manual
says that the service director is a part of the IBM warranty. And we
can't use it without registering.
We want to use it for notifing certain persons at a system failure
without placing a call directly with IBM.

Thanks in advance,

Kris Welleman
