Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

You can boot from floppy in order to check and potentially correct a root filesystem. However, you will a 'boot' floppy and a 'root' floppy to get a shell. You need both of them.

What SCO version CD do you have?

See my post#13 on this thread here with regards creating new floppies from a distribution CD. You may also learn something by reading all of that thread.

It probably won't matter if the floppies are a few revisions out from the installed system; you should be able to 'fsck' the root.

JGT's comment:
"As far as I remember, the install disk (N1) is only good to load a kernel and start the installation process from the cd. "

The 5.0.4 N1 was broken. I used the 5.0.5 version which accomplished the same thing.
