    Mainframe..... VM? VSE? MVS? zLinux?
    Do you know the mainframe? Know the differance between MVS, OS390 and z/OS? (there is none). Can you write JCL, see if a job went all-right? Ever worked with TSO/ISPF? Ever worked with static-SQL? Ever heard of CICS and/or IMS/DC? What will be your function: DBA or application programmer?

    To learn the mainframe will be a bigger challenge than DB2 itself.
