| I recently installed my free SCO Unix on a new machine, and forgot to
| set the bios date. It was something like 1976 or 1987, I can't remember.
| But after putting in the right date (after installing), I also got a
| "expired" message. I had to reinstall the whole thing. But the license
| data field doesn't have a date.
Apples and oranges.
One subject is a time-limited license, the actions of the license
manager when the bios date is incorrect is another. The date must
be after sometime in June 1995 for a proper install.
