Good hardware, horrible software (typical IBM). I am still fighting with
the 5363 III at RCS/RI.

The S/36 is a minicomputer, not compatible with the 360/370 line.

Do you have a part number (a four digit thing)?

Also, where is it located (my interest, or rather feasibility, drops
after several hundred miles - in any case, I am interested). If it is for a
360, it will be large.

Tell us more.
