SCO Unix Installation FAQ

Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

© December 2003 (various)

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the Release Notes are not quite up-to-date; this industry changes so quickly that a manual written this month will be out of date by the time it's come back from the printers.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 on-line solution is at http://www.sco.com/chwp

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.
