I have a sco unix 5.0.5 disk.  I'm having trouble with the kernal on this disk, indeed I think fsck has advised removal of some important files.
This is what I want to do:
I have a working unix system, I want to add the poor drive as a second filesytem to the good system, and hopefully read the data off the poor drive to the good one. The reason for this is I cannot add a nic on the poor drive kernal.
Is this possible, I see the main problem being that my good system is /usr and the poor drive is also /usr ???
If this is not possible can I lap-link unix to unix
and do a uucp copy, using the serial ports.
Cheers.

When you mount the old drive, do not mount it as /usr - mount it to some other mount point.  Then, assuming the 1st drive is installed as the boot drive with all of the OS on it, you can simply copy files from the whatever the mount point is for the old drive.
