We are running the following version of

SCO UNIX System V/386 Release 3.2

Are there any Y2K date patches for this.

When I try to set the date with the command

# date 0301120000
date defaults to
Wed Mar 02 12:00:00 ast 2000

This page seems to mention your version of the O/S and the fixes, but I'm not that familiar with SCO releases - Good luck!
