If you put SCO and FreeBSD in seperate partions, it should work.

I have tried Win98, SCO and Solaris in One HD and it works.
(I have not tried with FreeBSD yet)

Thank you for your answer.  Now here is the kicker. I cannot access the OS to do anything.  I need a boot disk and I don't have one.  Any suggestions?

Use a bootable FD with fdisk program (DOS, SCO) and make the OS partition active, to use the OS.

Or use some kind of multiboot software manager to do the job:

Have a look at the following pages:



You can also do a search for "multi boot" on the web, and you might find some FREE software.
