i never tried it for myself, but take a look at following packages:
here's the description:
Description: Intel Binary Compatibility Specification Module
The iBCS Emulator runs binaries for other Unixes.
* Sparc Solaris
* i386 BSD (386BSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, BSDI/386) - very alpha, very old.
* SVR4 (Interactive, Unixware, USL, Dell etc.)
* SVR3 generic
* SCO (SVR3 with extensions for symlinks and long filenames)
* SCO OpenServer 5
* Wyse V/386 (SVR3 with extensions for symlinks)
* Xenix V/386 (386 small model binaries only)
* SYSV IPC
* /dev/socksys socket interface as used by the Lachman STREAMS
based networking implementation.
* BSD and Wyse V/386 system call socket interface.
* /dev/spx STREAMS device (limited server support).
* XTI/TLI transports for TCP, UDP and related protocols - client
only (outgoing connections). Accepting connections untested.
This package contains the shared tools used by iBCS for both the 2.0
and 2.2 series kernels.
