Interesting find today!

I decided to take a trip down to Fort Wayne today, to one of my favorite
surplus shops.

I found a box of SCO Open Desktop 2.0.0. I don't know anything about
this specific version, but I thought it interesting since it is quite
removed from the current Caldera offerings. It appears to never have
been installed. It only has 6 main disks.... 3 3.5" floppies and 3
5.25" floppies, that have been opened, but I find it hard to believe
that they are anything more than boot and drivers disks. It also has 2
more disks, one of each size, these are unopened, and I don't know what
they are. I assume that the bulk of the OS is on the Qic24 tape, that
is unopened. Unfortunately, I only have two tape drives..... audio
cassette, and VHS, and those aren't for the computer :-)

I did try the 3.5" boot floppy on two of my computers..... it stops
during the hardware detect portion.... maybe because it can't find a
tape drive?
