SCO Unix Installation FAQ

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

What SCSI adaptors are supported on SCO Unix ?

If you have a running system, look in /etc/default/scsihas for a list. Also, check ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/openserver5/drivers for newest drivers, and the Hardware Compatibility Lists

For new installs, finding drivers for any new SCSI controllers may be impossible. When I have had to install SCO in recent years (only if there is just no way to use Linux!), I've usually used SATA. Older SCO doesn't even suppprt that, but most bioses let you put SATA in IDE emulation mode, which SCO can use.

Even if you can find a driver, it may not work as controller bioses are often updaed and the driver you found may be years out of date. Chasing this old stuff is time consuming and frustrating.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he, by peddling second rate technology, led them into it in the first place, and continues to do so today. (Douglas Adams)
