    on AIX machines u can install another version of the OS using alternative disk installation, check smitty install

    then u can boot from the alternate operating system, install another version of DB2


    Notes:

    1. u should have separte physical volume for this alt_disk_insalltation

    2. u have to install some file sets on the original system like alt.disk.insatll.xxx

    3. u can only boot from one version of AIX at a time

    4. some Models of RS/6000 or eServers (H70 for example) can provide Virtual machine with different OS concurrently but i think this is not the case

    1. check the installtion media for AIX 5L, search for alt_disk_insatll.boot_images, alt_disk_install.rte
    and install these file sets

    2. smitty alt_install, u will find a menu to install another OS version on separte physical volume

    check www.redbooks.ibm.com , search for AIX 5L certification guide, it contains step by step configuration

    let me know what happened

    should give basic information ...

    Also, please check the scripts db2rmln (remove links) and db2ln (create link) .. I hope I have spelt them right .. if you can find these scripts find all scripts with the letters ln and you should be able to identify the scripts ,,
