Hi all

I am aiming to learn something about AIX as we use that at our headoffice. To help me, I bought an RS6000 on ebay but it does not have AIX installed. I can't find any help on IBMs web site.

Does anyone know if it is possible to download AIX 4.3.3? After reading the manuals online, the box I have is licenced for it. I am just unable to find the software to install to it.

4.3.3 was killed off early last year. I would contact a local IBM sales rep and see if they can do anything for you. Your hardware may be compatible with a AIX 5.xx. Although, I am not sure of what kind of price we are talking about. You may want to contact your IT staff about getting an older copy of AIX or whatnot.
