    Well people,

    There are linux boot disks all over the place, what's the silence about
    doing it with Openserver? It is possible to create a boot floppy that will
    boot on any computer.

    It's probably possible, and would be very similar to the installation media
    boot CD, except that there would be no need to have any IDE or SCSI
    adapters configured because your root filesystem would have to be
    a very large ramdisk. Your application would have to be character-based
    and not need any network services. Basically, something that could easily
    run in single-user mode. See both the installation CD and the emergency
    recovery CDs used by the supertars for examples of starting points.

    BUT...

    There's that big problem of your probably violating the SCO Openserver
    License Agreement. You're using an unlicensed product to further a
    commercial activity, and most companies would look askance at such
    activity. Obviously, Linux doesn't have these restrictions.

    You'd be better off demoing your program over the internet using one of
    the many network collaboration packages out there. Or creating a
    Windows-based demo using demo software packages. Or simply
    logging in remotely to your own machine using VPN.

    Most end-users are not all that concerned about the underlying O/S,
    especially during a demo, so there's no need to run it on one of their
    own machines.
