DOS/Windows 3.1 Emulator?

Anyone know of a DOS/Windows 3.1 emulator for SCO?  If so, how robust is
it?  Can I run most applications/drivers under it?

Very, for 3.1/dos

That can be a little tougher, but mostly, yes.

Tom,

Yes.  SCO has two products that may fit the bill for you.
The first, called "SCO Merge" emulates MS-DOS 6.22 under
Unix, you then can install MS-Windoze 3.1 or 3.11 (WFW).
You can find a datasheet regarding Merge at:

        http://www3.sco.com/Products/Datasheets/merge.html

The second product is SCO WABI.  This actually translates
Windoze function calls into X Windows system calls.  WABI
supports a limited set of applications.  You can find a
product datasheet and list of support applications at:
