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.

		Thanks,

You need to get the iBCS emulator from tsx-11.mit.edu:pub/linux/ALPHA/ibcs2
