What is this stuff?

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

Even that might not be specific enough.  For some releases, we shipped
different N1 images for each of these:

  SCO Unix standalone distributed on floppies
  SCO Unix standalone distributed on tape
  SCO Unix standalone distributed on CD-ROM
  Open Desktop distributed on floppies
  Open Desktop distributed on tape
  Open Desktop distributed on CD-ROM

The two of you should compare part numbers and/or labels (in full
detail) printed on the disks, make sure they're really the same.  Thom
says "3.2v4.2" but I'm not sure whether he's stated whether it's
standalone Unix or ODT.
