I suspect you can change the shell editor from vi to emacs or something else.

Before doing this, bear in mind nfs is not very secure. Be careful how network visible this machine is.
The file /etc/exports on a linux nfs server allows you to give specific hosts on the network nfs access to specific directories. Add a line something like
then restart nfs server. I assume this is vaguely equivalent on the SCO machine but it may not be in /etc.
On the client (it's linux right?)
a line in /etc/fstab such as:
scohostname:/some/directory /mnt/mountpoint nfs rw,soft,intr,nfsvers=3,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0
The options can vary, but those should work I think
create the directory
You probably also have to set up TCP warppers to allow this on the SCO machine. Again, I don't know SCO, it may be different but it's ilke this on linux.
portmap: 192.168.0.5 : ALLOW
where 192.168.0.5 is the *ip* *address* of the nfs client box.
hope this helps.
