  Criteria for selection: site contains compiled binaries or sources
  specifically intended for SCO operating systems (Open Server, Open
  Desktop, UNIX or XENIX).  Sites which contain non-SCO-specific UNIX
  sources are ubiquitous and do not need to be specially announced.

  If someone could create an SCO-specific Archie server indexing the
  specified sites and directories below, it would be much appreciated.

  PLEASE NOTE that many of these FTP sites are maintained by
  individuals, not by the organizations whose networks they use.  The
  organizations generally should not be held responsible for the
  contents, maintenance or continued existence of the sites.
