I have my experience from SCO Internet Faststart, but that shouldn't pose a
problem. Installing SCO-Unix is possible via a EIDE-compliant CDROM-drive,
i.e. a ATAPI-compatible CDROM-drive. You will need to specify a bootstring
at startup, only if you have a SCSI-adapter installed in your system.
If the installation-procedure is the same in Openserver and Internet
Faststart, at a point in installation you will be prompted for
"Installation Media Device". At this point you simply choose SCSI-CDROM.
Select wd for the SCSI-adapter-type. Select 0 or 1 for the host adapter
number, depending on if the CDROM-drive is attached to the primary or
secondary IDE-controller in yor system. Select 0 or 1 as SCSI-ID, depending
on if the CDROM-drive is configured as master or slave. Select 0 for SCSI
LUN and for SCSI bus number. This should enable your CDROM-drive as the
In some systems it's neccesary to install a SCSI-host-adapter in the system
to make this work, but you don't need a SCSI-CDROM.
The above is described in "SCO Internet Faststart Release Notes" ver. 1.0
