  We've been talking with various Ethernet vendors (Interlan, CMC,
Excelan, etc.) concerning implementing Ethernet on our 80286 Multibus
box under UNIX System V.  Software-wise they'll give us a "socket
library", TCP/IP, a driver, and the BSD applications.  All the pieces
are there; it's the "socket library" that has me a bit confused.  4.2
BSD implements sockets in the kernel. I presume the socket library gives
the same functionality, but I don't see how.  Can anyone that has this
kind of library tell me what it actually does?

  Is there a public-domain socket-type library?

  We've heard a lot about SLIP, and we're thinking about puting SLIP on
another machine of ours.  Does SLIP use 4.2 type sockets?

				As always, thanks in advance.

		       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,
