	That's not going to work with a SCO kernel unless the new PC
	is identical from a hardware standpoint; SCO kernels are
	monolithic and have device drivers compiled and linked into
	the kernel.

	If you have install media you can likely install SCO on a
	different PC, and then copy the rest of the old system over,
	not touching any of the kernel bits when you do so.  This
	will likely have a fair chance of success.
