Can I download Sco Openserver 5.x - 30 day trial image anywhere ?? - SCO

I support Sco Openserver during field work and need an image I can install and play with on an IDE drive. All the images that I have are taken from SCSI drives and no use to me as I haven't got a SCSI drive A 30 day trial version is all I need just to help me get a feel for the OS and SCOadmin etc... Thanks PS I have broadband and would be able to download a couple of ISO images no problem...

    Not correct. There used to be free personal-use-only licenses for OSR 5,
    but the CD images were never available for downloading.

    Looks to me like OSR5 means OpenServer Release 5 ?? and I'm sure I

    OSR 5 means any OpenServer Release 5.0.0, 5.0.2, 5.0.4, 5.0.5, 5.0.6, or
    5.0.7.

    I'm getting a bit tired of repeating myself, but: ISO images were NEVER on
    any Caldera site for any one of those releases.

    Yep, OSR5 = SCO Openserver 5.0.x.

    I don't know where you were looking, but I have _never_ seen an ISO of
    OSR5 on SCO/Caldera's FTP sites or web-piles.

    Well I have seen an ISO image of Openserver 5.x
    whilst browsing the FTP site and the mirror sites directory by
    directory.
    Exactly where it was I can't remember but I would say I didn't get to
    it whilst looking for OSR5 I was looking for FreeBSD at the time
    Obviously it's not there now and I can't prove it, I didn't download
    at the time because I only had a 56k modem.

    I know what I saw!

    You probably remember seeing a patch. Perhaps the "rs505a"
    is what you saw and thought was iso images.
