Default Build my SCO 6.0 Server

I would like to build a dual Opteron SCO 6.0 server.

I'm looking for motherboard, video card and Raid 5 card suggestions that won't give me any issues using SCO since this is the first SCO server I have built.

All that will be running on this server is an accounting database.

Thanks in advance

Bad place to ask, this is a Linux forum. That company doesn't fare to well with us.

I'm not a SCO guy, but a client of mine wants me to build them a new server that will run the latest version of SCO for their accounting system. I don't know anything about SCO, which explains why I posted here.

Could you suggest a better forum that I should post this on?

Thanks

Frankly I can't think of any Linux forum where there would be a lot of people eager to help you with an SCO question.

If you don't know about SCO you should check out Groklaw.

SCO Unix is not Linux and I doubt you will have an easy time getting anything from nVidia running on their proprietary Unix. From my understanding, they do have a Linux Kernel Personality or some such that might help.

Also, I like how the mouseover on the word "SCO" brings up some Microsoft intellectual property nonsense Definitely check out Groklaw and let your client know that SCO is not to be trusted.
