You would first need to check and see if SIDUX supports mounting HTFS filesystems.

From what I have found while searching via Google, it does not appear promising.

I've tried to mount HTFS using sidux with 2.6.34 kernel, but it doesn't work:

root@sidux:/home/sidux# mount -t sysv /dev/sda3 /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda3,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Re: Mount HTFS under linux

The SCO HTFS filesystem is *not* the same thing as the "sysv" filesystem on Linux.

As far as I know, there is NO WAY to mount any of the proprietary SCO filesystem types (HTFS and EAFS) in any modern Linux distribution.

The only vendor that held a license for SCO filesystem code was CrosStor, which was apparently acquired by EMC. You might contact an EMC sales representative and ask him/her if they have a product that would help you...
