Yes, IBM are gradually "disappearing" the old support info.
The contents are still there, just hidden (read permissions turned off?)
You can get the files if you know what their names are (Catch-22).
A couple of people have set up mirrors of the content as it was last time
it was visible. Check the newsgroup for details
and ongoing status of the preserving of IBM's old info.
