How to get access to Sco Openserver Release 5 drive from Slackware

How do I mount a Sco Openserver Release 5 on Slackware 12 to get access to information on that drive? I am not sure which Filesystem is used. Any ideas will help a lot.

Apparently Sco OpenServer 5 uses HTFS and EAFS as it's file systems.
Looking around seemed to indicate that you couldn't mount these under Linux but this should give you something to search for.

If the Sco box is on your net maybe you could NFS mount the volume if it was shared to allow access from an attached Slackware box ?

I'm really no expert with Sco but maybe you have a starting point.

BTW it looks like the FS identification byte for these partitions is 0x63 (63 hex) - again I could be mislead here ! This will show as "GNU Hurd or Sys V" from Slackware's cfdisk.
