	it was February last year (2018), probably Feb 1 - Feb. 3. 
	The short story for how to do this is presented at:

	I did need to obtain an IBMid to read the web page completely, and I started with a CD labelled “AIX V4.2.1 for 5765-C34”. As you will see if you read the thread, subject "Password reset for ~1998 AIX on RS/6000?”, other alternatives exist, but this was all I needed.
	Hope this helps! Let me know if you need any other pointers.
