I shut off my last SCO Unix box in February.
My recollection is that QIC-80 required the FC10, and it was not built into the kernel. You had to at least recompile, and it may have required a special disk from the manufacturer of the FC10 (colorado?). QIC-02 support was easier if you have any of the drive/controller combos around.
If they still have a floppy drive, and you tell me the version of the unix (send uname -A), I'll see if I have the TCP/IP install set. If so, I can image it and send it along. It supported a limited number of cards, but the 3c509 was one of them and they are still abundent on the surplus market.
