I know you will hate this, but better now than later...

UnixWare 7 has 5-part device names with a c0b0t0d0p0 format.
It is just like the new Linux ones, except for the fourth letter.

Values of p are:

0 whole disk
1 first PC partition
2 second PC partition
3 third PC partition
4 fourth PC partition

Although SCO stops there, notice how much their system is like the
new Linux system. It would be great to eliminate the inconsistency
while we still can.
