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
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.
Only puny secrets need protection.
Big discoveries are protected by public incredulity.
