I'm having a somewhat vague recollection that much much older versions
of Linux (from circa '95 when I was using Slackware 2.1 with the very up
to date 1.5.9 kernel) had some flavor of support for SCO partitions. I
have some memory of having read some docs or notes online somewhere
about it. I don't think I've ever tried mounting a HD partition from
one of them on linux, though.

If it would be any help, I probably still have the CD with that ancient
Slackware, and also a (now) really ancient Red Hat 4.1 CD. ISO images
could be created in need.
