Brief Description of Announcement, Charges, and Availability

       AIX (R) Version 3.2.2 for RISC System/6000 (TM) (AIX/6000 (TM)
Version 3.2.2) consists of selective enhancements, separately and
optionally installable.  Customers can choose to install only the
enhancements needed, without having to reinstall the AIX Version 3.2

Version 3.2.2 for RISC System/6000 include support for new hardware
and international languages.
       In addition to the QIC120  1/4-inch and 8mm tape media,
available for AIX/6000 licensed programs, two new media are now
available.  CD-ROM media is available only for AIX Version 3.2.2 for
RISC System/6000 and AIXwindows (R) Environment/6000 Version 1.2.1.
The QIC525
 1/4-inch tape media is available for AIX Version 3.2 for RISC
System/6000 and all related program products available under
5750-ACG.  Ordering information for these two new media is included

who wish to update to AIX Version 3.2.2 for RISC System/6000 should
refer to Programming Announcement 292-003, dated January 21, 1992,
for the necessary ordering information.  All shipments of AIX
Version 3.2.1 for RISC System/6000 scheduled for the week of
June 26, 1992, will include the AIX Version 3.2.2 for RISC
System/6000 selective enhancements.  These enhancements are
optionally installable.
       Current licensees of AIXwindows Environment/6000 Version 1.1.1

NOTE: For feature numbers for other licensed programs, refer to
Programming Announcement 292-003, dated January 21, 1992.
       A toll-free number has been set up to accept orders for MES
updates.  Calls will be accepted from current licensees who want to
order MES updates.  Prior to calling the 800 number, IBM Software and
Manufacturing Delivery (ISMD) requires that all AIX/6000 licensed
program products installed on any RISC System/6000 hardware be
installed against the customer's appropriate hardware.  The licensed
program products must reflect the designated machine of the RISC
System/6000 processor on AAS.  If these conditions are met, ISMD will
enter an order for an MES to ship the release and will process the
installation of the MES.  The marketing representative will receive
notification from ISMD when the MES orders are entered.  Customers
are encouraged to place their MES updates using this number instead
of going through the branch office.  The toll-free number is
1-800-879-2755 and hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:00
a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Mountain time.
ISMD 1-800 NUMBER PROCEDURE FOR CUSTOMERS:  Current licensees of
AIX/6000 Versions 3.1.5, 3.2 and 3.2.1 and/or AIXwindows
Environment/6000 Versions 1.1.1 and 1.2 should call ISMD at
1-800-879-2755 to order AIX Version 3.2.2 for RISC System/6000 and/or
AIXwindows Environment/6000 Version 1.2.1.  ISMD will request of the
caller:
o   Verification of customer name/number.
o   Verification of ship-to-address.  For a permanent address change,
    the branch office must be contacted.
o   Verification of media on which the update will be provided.  If
    the update is required on a different media than reflected in the
    profile, ISMD will make a permanent change.
o   The number of software shipments to be generated.
o   RISC System/6000 hardware and software systems serial numbers
o   The expected shipment and receipt date.
       The following must be accomplished by the branch office:
o   Permanent address change
o   New chargeable software order requests
o   Software discontinuance
o   SIPO consolidations
o   Expedited software delivery requests.
       If ISMD is unable to fulfill the customer's request, ISMD will
refer the customer back to the IBM systems engineer or marketing
representative.
       Orders will be accepted for the following MES updates.  When
selective enhancements are ordered separately, only tape media is
available.
