This used to be a SCO Unix faq. I've updated a lot of it to include Linux and other info, but some of it may be strictly of interest to SCO users (or those migrating from it).
Personally, I don't see SCO surviving much longer - aside from the extreme hatred from some open source folk, it's obvious to most of us that Linux is simply a better choice today. That said, some folks are unfortunately stuck with applications that cann ot be ported to Linux.. so I keep this stuff here for them.
This FAQ generally deals with SCO Unix but not SCO Unixware. It covers Xenix, SCO Open Desk Top (ODT), Sco 3.2v4.x releases, and Open Server (OSR5). Of course SOME of this material is applicable to any Unix or Linux system.
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.
Of course, if you just want to learn everything you possibly can, reading the whole thing is a beginning.
There are two major divisions:

These FAQS were developed and maintained for years by [email protected] (Stephen M. Dunn). Steve no longer has the time to maintain them, and has asked me to take them over. Please remember the debt all of us owe to Steve for his efforts- I myself spent many hours learning from these very documents, and I'm sure many of us can say similar things.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. (Helen Keller)
