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.
If you already have your copy of Unix/Xenix/ODT, the first place
to look is in the Release Notes. If you see your hardware listed
there, it's supported.
However, the Release Notes are not quite up-to-date; this
industry changes so quickly that a manual written this month will
be out of date by the time it's come back from the printers. The

SCO used to make the Hardware Compatibility Handbook available
in the form of postscript files, but stopped in late 1997.
To be perfectly accurate, the HCH also is not always up-to-date.
The best advice is to scout around in the EFS directory on ftp.sco.com and read the doc
files for the latest and greatest Advanced Hardware Supplement
files. See also the TLS
and VCD directories,
plus the appropriate AHS
directory for your version.
