Question iBCS/COFF under Mandrake 9.0

I'm currently supporting some SCO SYSV COFF executables under Linux on Mandrake 7.2 (insmod ibcs), and would like to get to Mandrake 9.0 - which doesn't seem to provide ibcs support. (9.0 says they're not executable binaries).
Google searches seem to imply that COFF won't be supported under the 2.4 kernel - which sounds unLinuxlike to me.

The questions are:
A. Is there a support methodology for COFF executables under
Mandrake 9.0/ kernel 2.4?
B. Where is it documented, or what steps are required?

Thanks in advance.

(Later info: iBCS is supported as Kernel-ABI or linux-abi, from "". Current support thru kernel 2.4.18, altho Mdk9.0 is 2.4.20).
