What do you mean by Load Mainframe in our PC?

You can connect mainframe thru any Mainframe emulator.

Hope this helps

Regards

Rupesh

Greetings "tarunflash", see if the following helps:

You can run or rather emulate mainframe on an intel based platform (Linux/Windows). It is called "Hercules S/370 and ESA/390 Emulator" and it is a free software package (not for the PC novices). Hercules can run almost all the S/370, S/390 based instructions set. You can virtually run IBM Licensed products such as MVS, OS/390, Z/OS and other program products under it. Please try these URLs below for more information:

IBM Mainframes Forum Index -- Search for all terms, Keyword: hercules
http://ibmmainframes.com/search.php

Google Search for keyword: hercules emulator
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=hercules+emulator&btnG=Google+Search


Please note:
Due to very tight licensing restrictions by IBM, you cannot legally run (emulate) your IBM Licensed products MVS, OS/390, Z/OS on them. If your are a registered developer or a IBM Business Partner - I belive IBM grants you very restricted license (depending on the nature of the business) - check with your IBM reps.
See http://www.bsp-gmbh.com/hercules/os390/

You can run the public version of MVS v3.8J. It is just as good for learning mainframe OS and other supporting products. Plese review these URLs:
