Just wanted to say thanks for posting Jonathan Moore's SCO Openserver 5 install instructions for using SCSI disks. The Bus Logic BTLD, although quite a pain to "derive", ultimately worked great!
As a contribution back, I have attached the floppy image I used, as a convenience to the rest of the folks out there who might be a bit intimidated trying to find a non-XP windows box... :-)
Also, a few notes:
I created my VM under Vmware Fusion for the Mac, 2.0. I followed those instructions, and guessed when the steps did not exactly match.
I also used OSR5 5.07 install boot floppy and CD.
Other than that, works likes a charm.
I now have a SCSI disk based OSR5 server!
My next step, in case you have some experience or tips, is that I would like to convert this vmdk to a vhd, and run it under Citrix Xenserver. What do you think?
