Look on the Unix machine for sx, sb, and sz.  These are, respectively,
x-modem, y-modem, and z-modem download programs.  If one of them
exists, log in with a terminal program (HyperTerminal, Tiny Term?)
that understands at least one of these protocols, and use that to
transfer your files.

If that's not possible, kermit might be there, so you could use that
with any terminal program that understands the kermit protocol.  If
the Unix machine doesn't have kermit, you can get it in binary form
for nearly any OS.  Of course, you'll still have the chicken/egg
problem of getting it on the Unix system -- maybe by floppy.

If all else fails, here's a method I used a few times years ago when I
used a Commodore 64 to dial my first ISP. :-)  Tar/archive up the files
that you want, uuencode the tar file, and cat it to the screen, with
the 'capture buffer' in your terminal program turned on.  Once the
whole uuencoded file is captured in your term program's buffer, write
the buffer out to disk, and then reverse the process.  It's a hassle,
but as a last resort it will get the job done.

1. SCO Rel5 & Century Tiny Term PLUS NFS (Wollongong)

This may have already been brought up but I've been having problems with
SCO Open Server5 shutting down with a panic kernel dump whenever I reboot a
PC running Century's Tiny Term PLUS NFS package.  I'm using on the PC their
Pathway TCP/IP Stack (which is really an OEM product from Wollongong) and
using the odi binding method to lsl & ne2000.  This worked beautifully
under SCO Unix Open Server v3.2.4.  I called both Century & Wollongong and
they said that since their software is a "client" based product, SCO R5
should not be crashing in this form.  They (Wollongong) also said that they
can make PCNFS and a 3rd package do the same thing to the SCO Server.  I of
course called SCO and they said to make sure the "Release Supplement Disk"
was added as a patch (which I did).  I'm still having problems....what
