the P/390 / R/390 systems are the smallest, but they don't support a lot 
of systems features, such as LPARS and the like that you need to be a 
full S/390 system.

Also the card doesn't fully support z/OS.  Redbook on page 17 says, 
"Don't call us because it looks like it runs z/OS".

The MP3000 does support LPAR and Sysplex.
