SCO TCP/IP runtime System for SCO Unix

Hi everyone i have a question for all of you. It may be basic or it may be a good one. I recently aquired a copy of "SCO TCP/IP runtime System for SCO Unix" (thats what the disks say) and for the life of me i can not get it to load. i have tried opening the disk in linux and it can not determine the file type. i have tried wnidows and it wants to wipe it out (typical) and i have tried a plain old un partitioned disk. I have not tried my free bsd boot yet, but i dont think it will work either.
anyway the disk says:

SCO TCP/IP runtime System for SCO Unix
media: 135dshd
type: ku386
release: 1.2.1o

has a seriel # and it is a 3 floppy disk set... does any one know how i can get this up and running. maybe i am missing the point of the title where it says "for SCO unix" but my impression was that this was a light version of unix it self. if i am wrong lay it on me brothers!!! because i just am brain farting here. So any point in the right direction would be outstanding. thanks alot Smilie

NAME
mkfs.bfs - make an SCO bfs filesystem SYNOPSIS
mkfs.bfs [options] device [block-count] DESCRIPTION
mkfs.bfs creates an SCO bfs filesystem on a block device (usually a disk partition or a file accessed via the loop device). The block-count parameter is the desired size of the filesystem, in blocks. If nothing is specified, the entire partition will be used. OPTIONS
-N, --inodes number Specify the desired number of inodes (at most 512). If nothing is specified, some default number in the range 48-512 is picked depending on the size of the partition. -V, --vname label Specify the volume label. I have no idea if/where this is used. -F, --fname name Specify the filesystem name. I have no idea if/where this is used. -v, --verbose Explain what is being done. -c This option is silently ignored. -l This option is silently ignored. -h, --help Display help text and exit. -V, --version Display version information and exit. Option -V only works as --version when it is the only option. EXIT CODES
The exit code returned by mkfs.bfs is 0 when all went well, and 1 when something went wrong. SEE ALSO
mkfs(8) AVAILABILITY
The mkfs.bfs command is part of the util-linux package and is available from https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux/. util-linux July 2011 MKFS.BFS(8)
