Unixware and the Open Server Kernel Personality

The OpenServer Kernel Personality (OKP) module is a special layer of software that can be installed over an existing UnixWare 7.1.3. system as to allow existing OpenServer 5.0.x applications to run unmodified under the UnixWare7 environment. This module allows users with existing OS5 apps to migrate to the newer UW7 platform without having to reinstall or configure the software.

Unixware 7.1.0 floppy needed  
- I'm installing a unixware 7.1.0 software on a server to replace an older server. When i go to install the boot floppys the first disk reads fine. the second disk will not read. I downloaded the second disk boot image from the caldera ftp site but I get the same error. I downloaded the 7.1.1 images and they work fine so I know my rawrite and floppy are fine but I cant install 7.1.0 from 7.1.1 boot disks. I even recreated the disks from the first CD but the second disk still fails. -

Unixware 7 Incoming PPP  
- "Virgin" Unixware 7.1 or 7.1.1 system (a system that hasn't been messed' with in trying to setup incoming PPP). This is the best place to start. If you've tried to setup PPP and have failed, you may need to restore your settings to their default state before proceeding. (Notes on some of those are listed below). If you plan on logging in as root', keep your security level to low or traditional. -
