    Yep.  I used to run ESIX on my home system in the erly '90s.  Cost me 
$1,300 back in the day for an unlimited user development system.  At that 
point, there weren't many options for Unix on a 386/486.  SVR4 has all the 
goodies: networking, X11, BSD utilities, compilers.  Distributed by Everex.
I don't remember what format the disks are in.
