dos 'dir' crashed my SCO box

dos 'dir' crashed my SCO box

        Our sco box at work has been acting up...
this morning, I compressed a file (using 'compress') and apparently corrupted
it.  I say that, because I couldn't uncompress it later..."bus.0619.Z is not
a compressed file."

Anyway, later on, when I was about to look at some /dev files, I did the

cd /usr/dev

it handled the 'cd' command pretty well, but the dir command froze my terminal
session.  When I finally got over to the other building to look at the screen,
the screen read thusly:

I'm much more used to AIX than SCO, and as it is, I'm only an admin in
training for AIX.  Any help will be greatly appreciated!

1. I've done everything, still can't mount linux dirs from Win95

Linux System is a Pentium running Redhat 5.0
Two Windoze systems.  #1 is running Win95 (Original release) with service
pack 1 installed.
#2 is running Win95 OSR 2.

I'm logged into both systems as a user with the same name (Norm) and the
same password (none).
I've set the regedit key at
EnablePlainTextPassword  to  1

I can mount all of the directories from Win system #1 on the Linux machine
with no problem.  

I can't mount any of the directories from Win system #2 (diagnostic is
"invalid argument" with the additional error message:
"smb_dont_catch_keepalive: server->data_ready == NULL"  but I can ping Win
system #2 from the Linux machine by name successfully and the IP address is

From Win system #1, when I try to "map network drive" in explorer, I'm
asked for a password and nothing I say is acceptable.  I haven't tried it
from Win system # 2 yet.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for all suggestions.
