Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

So I recently got a boxed copy of "SCO Open Server Network System 3.0" that was an opened box. In addition to duplicate copies of three of the manuals, it contained a copy of "SCO Open Desktop / Open Server Release 3.0" on CD. According to the original packing list, this is not original to this box. The CD doesn't appear to be bootable, and I have no boot disks (unless the ones included with the Network System will work). Also, keep in mind, that like much of SCO's software it likely requires a set of license and activation keys (which I also lack for both pieces of software). Is anyone interested in a rip of this CD? I don't see it on the FTP (only 5.0 and up).

BTW, I will make an upload out of "SCO Open Server Network System 3.0", but it's on QIC-24, and I don't have a tape drive yet to do so.

Yes, please send up a dump of the disc even if it\s incomplete.

Thanks.

Ok, we might be able to build a complete system.
I have two boxes labeled "SCO Open Desktop - tape version" and "SCO Open Desktop - update", it has everything but the QIC tape. Where are you located?

PS: I have "SCO Open Server Network System 3.0" on CD

So presumably the boot disks from that set should work. Very cool!

I'm located in Joliet, IL (near-ish Chicago).

I should be able to get the disc ripped and scanned tonight or tomorrow.

I hope the floppies are associated with the appropriate release. I will upload them today.

Hmm... they may not be. Those appear to have a completely different graphic design style than the boot disks that came with the network system, which appears to be roughly the same age as the CD. Can't hurt to try though, I suppose.

I think we should try. Did you manage to dump the QIC tape ? Check your PM.

No, I have not. I don't currently have a drive to do it with. I won't have the money to pick up a drive for a while.
