SCO 5.0.5 media needed

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

We run a very old sco server and need to re-install (once every ten years;-)

Unfortunately, even if my licences are okay, the CD is missing in the dusty box.

I contacted SCO with no luck, the product is discontinued
Maybe someone here could help me with providing an iso image
thank you in advance

Note from Tony Lawrence August 2009:

I do have a zipped image of 5.05 media.

If you'll send me an email, I'll make arrangements to get it to you.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

Got something to add? Send me email.

I threw all that stuff out a few years ago. You do see this stuff on E-Bay now and then.

Another thought is to use Microlite Edge or Lonetar to make bare-metal restorable backups. See "Transferring to new hardware with a Supertar" at (link)

And I'd also suggest posting at comp.unix.sco.misc

I may still have the 5.0.5 media around here -- I'm a bit of a pack-rat in that regard. I'll search the dungeon (closet under the stairs) and see what I can see. The question will be how to get copies into your hands.

Nothing there..

It's there. You just can't browse the directory.

It's here!
Nice shot!

thank you

Currently I have the same problem as qube.

I have to re-install sco server - and same as qube licences are okay, and one of the cd`s is missing.

I`ve tried with the server mentioned below but the file is already gone frome there.
If there is some possibility of putting this image again on this ftp (or any other) I will be very grateful for helping me with my issue.

Thanks in advance

Here is my office adress: [email protected]
It will be really big help for me if you will be able to provide me this media anyhow...

is that possible to get the software media for SCO 5.X.X

Tue Oct 27 19:22:04 2009: 7365   TonyLawrence


Is it possible for you to send me a check for $xyz.XX ?

Is it possible for you to call me at xyz-xyz-xyzX ?

If not, send me email at [email protected] and we'll take care of xyzX within xyz days.
