SCO Unix comp.unix.sco Technical FAQ 4/9Questions and Answers about TCP/IP and NFS
MUCH OF THE MATERIAL AT THIS SITE IS RELATED TO SCO OSR5. OSR5 is Unix, so SOME of what you'll find here is useful if you are running Unixware, Solaris, Linux or whatever, but if your specific OS is not specifically mentioned, take whatever you read as being POSSIBLY WRONG FOR YOU.
The best way to find something is to use the Search Tools (http://aplawrence.com/search.html) at this site. Every FAQ article is extensively indexed, so that really is the best way to find anything. Try it before you get eyestrain reading through the index. The searches also index other material NOT in the FAQ, which is yet another reason to use them.
