SCO Openserver 5.0.6 installation error

I am trying to re-install SCO OpenServer 5.0.6 on a Compaq Proliant ML570.
I have used the following boot string to install:

restart link="ciss" hd=Sdsk Sdsk=ciss(0,0,0,0) Srom=wd(0,0,0)

The SCSI disks appear in the hwconfig list ok and so does the cdrom but when
the installation screen goes to read data from the cdrom, the cdrom spins,
it reads
about 1024k and then I get the following error:

System Error 17: while creating symlink: /bin/sh

Any ideas on how to proceed with the install???
