Selling an old IBM AS400/9404

The old CISC AS/400's do not retain a lot of value due to their relative
lack of speed, ram and disk capacity, and general proprietary wierdness.
I had a similar but not as nice 9404 E0? and 9402 d02 for free. I believe
that version of the OS might have some Y2k issues. The RISC models are
another story. I hate to say it but you might have better luck selling
the more desirable features like the ethernet if you're intent on selling
it and no one will pick up the whole box.
