I have a scsi hard drive with SCO OpenServer 5 on it (unknown revision, just says 5 on the boot screen). The disk is OK but the original hardware took a power hit. I need to access some files on the disk and copy them to a PC readable medium (FAT/NTFS/ETC).

What I have:

The SCSI disk which fails to mount the rootfs on bootup and halts

A SCO install CD-ROM with which I made install disks, but I do NOT have a SCSI CD-ROM so I can't do install!! (wasted all day trying to get a wd driver to work).

I need to get to mount /dev/u at point /usr2

PLEASE HELP. Lots of points will be rewarded, I will be posting many other questions on this topic today I am sure. Thanks.
