if this is not for filePro then do not copy this section below, or the
"GZ=..." field above, and you might want to grab the entries from the linux
/etc/termcap for linux and some of the klone+XX entries instead of this. 
At the bottom of the linux entry in /etc/termcap there are sometimes a few
"tc=klone+sgr:tc=klone+color:...". so along with linux, grab whatever other
entries the linux one references with "tc=..." 

if after this your apps seems to work ok as far as color and recognized
keystrokes, but you still have junk instead of graphics characters for
line-drawings, you could try either or both of the following.
run mapchan -n on the sco box just before running the application
replace all of the GS,GE,GV,G1,etc... in the linux entry you copied with the
ones listed above.

and if this is for general use (as opposed to a particular app that you
happen to know uses termcap) you will also want to copy the terminfo files.

I don't know if you can just copy the binaries or if you have to copy source
and then compile it on open server.

to try just copying the binary:
copy from linux: /usr/share/terminfo/l/linux
to sco:  /usr/lib/terminfo/l/linux

otherwise, on linux do:
infocmp linux >linux.src
then copy linux.src to /usr/lib/terminfo on sco
then on sco do: 
cd /usr/lib/terminfo
tic linux.src
