USB Printing for SCO UNIX OpenServer 5.0.7

Years ago I set up USB printing for SCO UNIX OpenServer 5.0.7 for a client--but I've misplaced my notes on how to do this! Maintenance Pack 5 is installed. I need step-by-step instructions to proceed. I've searched the SCO Knowledge Base site and found nothing there or elsewhere on the Web.

Thanks, but that's for UnixWare 7, not SCO OpenServer 5.0.7.

I'm aware that the link refers to UnixWare 7 but does it not also apply to Openserver V?

We all know that USB support on Openserver was lacking for a long time until particular maintenance packs arrived. However, after that the USB ports were recognised by the kernel and can be used.

Once the USB ports have device nodes (in /dev) that work (and you can test with, say, a memory stick) then can't a USB printer be attached in the way described using scoadmin?
