Hi John,

Yes I have installed DB2 / UDB for Windows in (or through) an FSIOP/IxS Card
successfully. The card is just hardware that has an Intel Chip that allows
you to install say Windows and just utilize the AS/400's DASD and memory. It
will function like a normal DB2 in a Wintel box. Please note that you cannot
access the DB2 installed through the FSIOP or IxS cad through OS/400 as if
it is installed under OS/400, you would need odbc / jdbc / or some DB2
connectivity software to interchange data in between. The DB2 installed
through the FSIOP or IxS card is treated as if it is installed on a separate
DB2 - Wintel box.

Hope this helps,

RdR

Just to clarify, the IXS card has its own memory and does *not* share
the one of the AS400.

Hi Marc,

You are right, I should have separated reference to the older FSIOP card and
the newer IxS card. Thanks for pointing that out.
