Is it possible to do my UNIX SCO recognize diskettes of a PC machine?. The question is that, when I get some UNIX software from Internet, I do that from a PC (that is where I have installed the modem and the Internet software). I don't have a modem on my UNIX. It would be good, to install that software on the UNIX, but it's not possible because the machine don't recognize the PC diskettes?. Maybe it's a stupid question but I need some help....

Check the  "mount" command in the SCO machine, when you specify the filesystem that you want to mount you should be able to say you are mounting a FAT diskette. It could be called DOS diskette or wathever that resembles the name of a PC diskette.

Well, I'm just beggining with UNIX and I'm not sure your answer clarify me things. Anyway, I'll try to do what you say.
It would be good you to be more explicit. Thanks.
