Last night I started the in place upgrade from OSR5.0.0 (with rsD, net100,
etc) to OSR5.0.4 (both Enterprise).
At 87%, I received the following error:
Error: a2x0 is not installed on this system
Error: Please install it and rerun /usr/lib/netconfig/init/sco_tcp
Error: Cannot configure lo0 under sco_tcp
Error: Loopback driver must be the last sco_tcp driver removed
Error: Netconfig add_partial failed
a2x0 is the Kingston-supplied driver for the KNE2121 NIC; I assumed I
could simply install later, so I chose (I)gnore and continued.
Several minutes later, again at 87%, I received another error:
drt/Driver.o [Part of the message may have scrolled
i386ld fatal: System referencing errors.
No output written to unx.
ERROR: Can not link edit unix.
idbuild: idmmkunix had errors
System build failed.
Error: kernel link failed.
Again, figuring I had nothing to lose, I chose (I)gnore and it continued
to the reboot. Then I received the following errors:
System auditing is not enabled
can't find MP_SYSINFO in this kernel
Print services started.
The boot to multiuser continued except it stayed a long time at the TCP/IP
start up part. It eventually continuued except that I receive the
following errors for every line in the inittab:
/etc/getty tty07 sc_m (date/time stamp)
Cannot fork to run /tcb/lib/initcond: Resource temporarily unavailable
The system did come up but the hwconfig shows no swap or dump (= none).
The attempted login as root on tty01 failed with
LOGIN: ... resource temporarily unavailable
Is there any way to recover or do I start over? Must I do a fresh install?

I do have a set of Lone-Tar Airbag diskettes for the old OSr5.0.0 system;
I haven't been able to create any such for the new one yet.
