I dont know about sco but other Unix's like linux can be installed on the same pc as windows 95. Each one have to have it's own disk partition.

thanks to both avivl and ginawi. avivl's answer and ginawi's comment have given me hope; but would like more specific steps to take, if possible, from anyone.  I am planning to purchase SCO's system 5 (already have win95).  Thanks again.
