Hmm, the problem is that I don't know what model that is. On the box there
is nothing that might help to identify the model type, the only thing I know
is that it was a little one (the smallest and narrowest) model with added
storage expansion (which makes it twice as wide).

hmmm, I definitely didn't change any connections, it's connected to twinax
port 0 on the as/400 and enters _left_ part of the Y-cable on the 3477

I'm dumb in all the IPL and other AS/400 basics, so I don't want to bother you
with dummy questions. if there is any place to read about this, please point
me to it so we can talk on another level, not 'do this, do that'.

when it worked, the IPL set was 'B N', which seemed to be 'disk' and 'normal
boot'. I tried perhaps all the combinations of ABCD and NM, but nothing
really worked for me. when selecting some IPL and powering on the box,
different addresses (?) appear on the LCD front panel. the left LED (the green
one) flashes in quite a random manner (loading something?), but there is
nothing on the console.

perhaps seems to be a console problem... perhaps. if you know the 3477
terminal, can you tell me all the requiered settings? one/two display, unit
numbers etc etc, I'd be really thankful!

thanks in advance,
