    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.
