as the patches on sapserv for AS/400 are ALWAYS cumulative patches in opposite to the other platforms you'd have to install both of them. The first one lifts you to 275 and the second one to 308. 280 is no longer available because 308 superseeded it. So please take 308 and apply the other EXEs and last but not least the LIB_DBSL as well! The question "to upgrade" to 4.6D is not easy. Is the customer already running 4.6x ? Yes => Install 4.6D Kernel and apply all patches because only this one will be maintained. When the customer is running e.g. 4.5B it would be a real upgrade and then you should consider the timeschedule of the customer.
