*shrug* IBM's upgrade roadmaps for AS/400 operations are what I'd look
at in terms of models for complete and accurate documentation of
procedures. They are written so someone that's only passingly
familiar with the machine, like "I swap tapes for the weekly backup, and
know what phone number to call if the air condition alarm goes off", can
sit down with the books and cds and tapes and have a completely upgraded
OS at the end of it, given only that the AS/400 is functional at the
beginning, and that escaping out of the process for reasons of critical
errors is okay, as it leaves the machine untouched.
The following page has some links to samples of this kind of doco.
 Disclaim: I do work for IBM. With AS/400s.
