OS/400 commands to do a complete system save

I need to do a complete system save before an operating system upgrade. I am unfamiliar with all of the OS/400 commands to accomplish this. What is the easiest way to do it?

At the command line type GO SAVE. Take menu option 21. Fill in the parameters, but make sure you press F10 and go to the second page. There is a parameter to PRINT System Info that should be set to Y.
