I haven't used SCO for a few years now but I remember that a SCSI tape drive would be configured using:

# mkdev tape

You'll need to know which scsi id the tape is set to (jumper wise)

This will present a menu driven config routine at the end of which you should select relink kernel=yes, and rebuild environment=yes

How is the Equinox connected to the system? Add-in card, USB, or what? It's not a product that I'm familiar with.

The main configuration tool built into SCO OS is:

# scoadmin

Search the web for that

This pdf mentions SCO Unix and gives instructions on configuring the tftp. Looks like this device loads its firmware from a host using tftp.

Mr Hicks. Don't you have a better way to spend Saturday night.
Kanthi, the pdf that hicksd8 refers to does not mention SCO at all. If you examine the software media, and the file name(s) are VOL.000.000 then the software installs by starting scoadmin and selecting software; if the media contains a tar file, or a list of files then it has its own install script on the media.
I read the install instructions in the above pdf, and the software does install through custom, although it should not be necessary to mount the cd first, just start custom through scoadmin, either using the command line or gui, and select cdrom as the media. Custom will open the cdrom and list all the packages that are on it.
