Yes you can.  SCO has two products to do this, both of which are not free, but available for 30 day evaluations.

The first is VisionFS, which is part of Vision2K.
The second is Advanced File and Print Server (AFPS).
Both products can share files and printers. The latter is the "deluxe" version, and has greatly enhanced printing capabilities, and can duplicate every service that an NT server can provide.

If your primary concern is sharing files, then I would suggest VisionFS, since it is quite easy to set up, and is adminstered via a Windows client.

IF you wish to have enhanced printing capabilities, or wish to replace a Windows NT server, then you shoudl use AFPS.
