ufstype=old = how old? SunOS fstype=4.2 old?

Hi all,

Can I mount under Linux old file systems that were built
on a SunOS 4.1x box that lists the fstype in /etc/fstab as 4.2?

If so, is the proper ufstype=old?  

I've checked the man page for mount as well as
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/filesystems/ufs.txt without finding
anything other than "old".  This will be some work to set up
so I thought that I'd ask before diving in.





1. Missing a serial number for SCO OS 4.2 (old-old-old...)

About a week ago in a local computer recycling store I picked up a full
box of SCO OpenServer 4.2. It looks like all the floppies are there, as
well as manuals. I have an old PS/2 System 70 I would like to install
this OS onto, since Linux is not very big on MicroChannel, and I also
don't have a CD-ROM drive for it. But almost all the way down the
installation I was asked for a "serialization card" and then realized I
don't have one in the box. Can anybody help me with this problem?

Thanks in advance.


P.S. I hope the numbers are not hard-coded for each set of floppies...
