How to mount SCO 3.2v4.2/ODT 3.0 CD - SCO

Could you please explain how to mount SCO 3.2v4.2/ODT 3.0 Installation CD out of any SCO Unix? I ask for exact mount statement, or, if there is a third-party tool used to access this SCO CD, let me know where is it on the Internet. I have available RedHat 7.3, Solaris 8, and Windows 2000/NT. Windows did not recognize that SCO CD at all, while in other two OS I tested practically all supported filesystems in a mount statement (iso9660/hs/hsfs, ufs, s5, afs, dfs, hfs, etc) without success. Interestingly 'UnixWare Development Kit' CD was mount without problems. Thank you in ...

    An ODT 3.0 CD doesn't contain a mountable filesystem. It contains a
    series of tar archives separated by "file marks". Under SCO Unix /
    OpenServer, this format can be accessed via the "cdt" (CD Tape) driver.
    But you should be able to read it on any system by using `tar`. Just
    plain `tar tvf /dev/cd0` should show the contents of the first archive.
    To get to the next archive you'll have to figure out its offset and use
    something like `dd` to grab it.

    OpenServer CDs didn't switch to an ISO filesystem format until OSR5.0.0.

    Also, inside the tar archive, most of the files within the will be
    compressed. There's an archive header bit that says which files are
    compressed, which bit will probably only be recognized by SCO Unix /
    OpenServer `tar`. Basically if a file has a name other than "*.Z", but
    shows up as LZH-compressed, you need to rename it *.Z and uncompress it.
