PRODUCT NAME: Free SCO UnixWare

DESCRIPTION:  Free SCO UnixWare is a set of licenses to use the
 fully-functional SCO UnixWare Personal Edition -- an advanced UNIX
 operating system that turns industry-standard Intel processor-
 based PC's into high-end workstations and development system
 platforms. In addition to traditional UNIX System facilities and
 development tools, Free SCO UnixWare includes Internet Services
 and full TCP/IP networking.

 Internet Services includes everything you need to quickly get up
 and running on the Internet or Web. Free SCO UnixWare allows you
 to explore the Internet and publish your own Web pages using
 Netscape Navigator Gold 3.0. It also allows you to run your own
 personal Web server using Netscape FastTrack Server 2.0. All of
 this is facilitated by the fast and reliable transport provided by
 enhanced PPP from Morning Star Technologies. Additional networking
 capabilities include IPX/SPX, NFS, DNS, SMTP and POP.

 The development system provided with Free SCO UnixWare includes C
 and C++ compilers, a complete set of libraries and APIs,
 debuggers, and other tools for code development and testing.

Free SCO UnixWare must be licensed for personal, educational,
noncommercial use during installation.  These licenses are
obtained at no charge via the Internet.  The license page can be
found using any standard web browser by selecting "Products" at
http://www.sco.com.  Free SCO UnixWare cannot be relicensed for
commercial use, nor upgraded to a multi-user system.

 
OTHER INCLUDED PRODUCTS:  The following other products are also
 included with Free SCO UnixWare:

 -SCO ARCserve/Open Lite from Cheyenne Release 2.1 provides for
  backups and system crash recovery. This is a reduced
  functionality version of the commercial product. It allows basic
  local backup and recovery operations via a user-friendly
  administration interface.

 -Netscape Navigator Gold 3.0 offers all of the Web browsing
  features of Netscape Navigator 3.0, but also includes web
  authoring capabilities and one-button publishing of your personal
  Web pages.

 -Netscape FastTrack Server 2.0 allows you to maintain your own
  personal Web server. It is an effective entry solution to
  providing Web information on the Internet or Intranet. It is a
  high performance Web server that is easy to install and manage.
  Additional features include support of the Secure Sockets Layer,
  transparent multiple domains, logging facilities, and the ability
  to restrict access to specific directories or to specific hosts.

 -SCO PPP from Morning Star is enhanced Point to Point Protocol
  software that features the capability to handle high volumes of
  concurrent sessions, link level error detection, enhanced
  connectivity device support, authentication by PAP/CHAP,
  callback, full data compression, and dynamic IP address
  negotiation.
