The answer would be easy if you would post sufficient information.
SCO Unix consists of more than 12 products over the past 9 years.
Obviously which one you have just might make a difference.

VisionFS is included with 5.0.4 at no extra cost.  Takes about
3-4 minutes to configure the Unix side, the msdos side depends
on how cooperative the win box is.

| Nothing is ever as easy as it sounds.  Your choices as I see them are to
| either get an NFS package for each PC you will use to connect to the UNIX
| system, or else install SAMBA on the UNIX system and let it pretend to be
| an NT server to the other PC's via their native SMB protocol over TCP/IP.
| Having done this both ways, I would suggest SAMBA.  It's free for the
| porting, and works reliably. has info.
| Also, SCO has (had?) some SMB tools out at one time, which may be worth
| investigating.....

Are you serious?  VisionFS is discussed almost everyday.
