Is the SCO machine still answering "pings"? Are there other services
than "samba" (e.g. "ftp", "telnet",...) running on this machine? Are
they running well?

Is "nmbd" also running? Perhaps you find further information within

("..., 1014 are available") in the log files of my Linux/samba servers
and they run quite well. ;-)
