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.
You need to have the SCSI versions- I don't know of any drivers for the parallel port types. The SCSI versions are added as any SCSI hard drive is: "mkdev hd". I'd suggest that you name the filesystem something like "zip" or "jazz".
SCO 5.0.7 will support ide devices.
When you want to mount this, just "mount /dev/jaz /mnt" etc. If you have enabled Dos filesystem support (on OSR5 "mdev dos" ), you can mount Dos filesystems on these cartridges.
To create a file system on a blank or Dos cartridge, leave it unmounted and run "divvy /dev/jaz" (or whatever you called it). Follow the prompts to create a new filesystem.

Don't blame me for the fact that competent programming, as I view it as an intellectual possibility, will be too difficult for "the average programmer" — you must not fall into the trap of rejecting a surgical technique because it is beyond the capabilities of the barber in his shop around the corner.
