P50 12-Way Model iSeries

I have a P50 12-Way Model iSeries machine running V5R1 OS. This machine has two partitions. Can I create a third partition and run OS V4R4?

Generally speaking, you can only have one previous or one newer partition, so you can't jump from V5R1 backwards below V4R5. However, if your primary partition is V4R4, you can have a secondary that is V5R1. Some 8xx models will only support V4R5 and higher. Check the information center for your model.
