SCO Install/Preserve Old System

SCO Install/Preserve Old System

Post by Brett Turcot » Sun, 26 Jan 1997 04:00:00

Just got the Free SCO OpenServer, and I'm trying to install it on my system.  
I've got the EIDE stuff*ed (score one for the good guys!), but I want to
keep my current system setup as much as possible, and boot SCO from System
Commander.  What I have now is

3 EIDE Drives (Drive 0 and 2 are 2.1GB, Drive 1 is 1.2GB, drives 0 and 1 are
on IDE controller 1, Drive 2 and CD are on 2), FAT partitions, 1 primary and 1
extended on each drive, with the extendeds further partitioned into logical
drives.  I'm running multiple OSs (DOS 6.22, Win95, NT3.51, NT4.0, OS/2 and
Linux), and I'd like to install SCO to drive 2 in its own partition.  However,
I can if needful scrape together 'bout 300MB disk space on drive 0...any
thoughts, comments, etc.

Then the worms eat you.  Be grateful it happens in that order.


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...
