	Has anyone gotten the Word Perfect 6.0 Demo for SCO Unix to work
under Linux through iBCS?

	I got only as far as decompressing some files and then it gives
me the prompt without any other messages.

	Please e-mail me with any successful attempts and how you did
it.


thanks,
- Bruce

As you may know, there is now a Linux directory on ftp.wordperfect.com with
instructions on getting the statically linked SCO binary.  I downloaded it this
morning, and it runs well.  Please note that if you get the plain SCO demo, it is
dynamically linked and will not run under linux unless you can somehow get the SCO
shared libs (which is going to be difficult to do legally).
