Here is some news I found out. Sco Xenix Openserver 5 used HTFS. So this adds a new twist to all this. Any new input?

My Search for your info. A number of these seem to be what you may need.

Ok I said when I pulled this off I would bring it back here. It seems that yes Xenix OS5 is HTFS. It also seems the 2 known drivers to make linux read HTFS have vanished from the web. One was by Crosstor which was taken over by another company. The other was written by Andrzej Dereszowski. Both drivers are gone so I digress. I also ran into issues that the old Xenix box I was using only had HTFS support. I could not use it to make a sysv partition to use as a universal partition and move the HD back and forth. What I ended up doing was sending the drive to a Tandberg Tape drive and then pulling back off on the linux system. It is not the sexiest way to do it, but it worked. Thanks again for all the help.
