If you do not have SCO OPEN SERVER v 5.x you will not be able to do it.
The previous version did not support it.

You can upgrade to SCO OPENSERVER v5.04.
If this system is for personal use you can "buy" the free SCO OPENSERVER.
and other products for a very small price

Another way. If you are a very very good C programmer you can change the Unix kernel
to support it.
