    introduce the structure of an OS/390 and S/390 operating environment.

    The set will help you install, tailor, and configure an OS/390 operating

    system, and is intended for system programmers who are new to an OS/390


    Chapter 1 provides an introduction to OS/390 implementation and daily

    maintenance, and how to IPL an OS/390 system. Described are the main

    parameters and system data sets necessary to IPL and run an OS/390

    operating system and the main daily tasks that a system programmer

    performs in order to maximize the advantages that a well implemented

    operating system can offer to your I/T structure.

    Chapter 2 describes subsystems and how to define them.

    Chapter 3 describes the two job entry subsystems, JES2 and JES3.

    Chapter 4 describes what factors should be considered when placing

    load modules or load libraries into storage.

    and the various types of catalogs.
