interesting. IMHO win2k is configure ot run in multiple OD environmet here. In fact it will run fine with two mS windows OS. But this is the case for SCO openserver. I guess a third party os laoder is required here

I am not sure if this os loader helps, but it has great review.

Here are some solutions :

System commander is the most versatile solution.
see
http://www.v-com.com/
for more info.
There are other solution such as boot part , which can boot linux from an NT boot manager list.

It is very dependent on how your partitions are set up.

The newer versions of partition magic come with a boot manager also

               You can get this os loader shareware for free which is called OSL2000. Get it from

 If you want to have Linux run within Windows, try downloading WinLinux2000.

I have a problem with the recommendation. The question was "I want to Dual boot Win2k Server and SCO OpenServer 5.0.5"

None of the solutions posted, other than mine on 08/06/2001 11:25AM PDT pointed to a SCO solution.
