X-Newsreader: NN version 6.5.0 #5 (NOV)

I am trying to run binaries compiled on SCO Unix (file indentifies that
program as "COFF 386 executables not stripped") with no success.
I get "Segmentation fault" error right away.

If I try to run the same version of the program compiled on SCO Xenix
(file says it's the Microsoft a.out executable), I get the message:
"Binary file can't be executed".  Permissions are set, though.

Anybody has a clue?  I have Slackware 1.0.9 on 486/66, BusLogic EISA SCSI,
525 MB Fujitsu, and Archive Viper for tape.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
