You might try sneaking in under SCO's "Early Availability Program." I don't
know who qualifies, but if you do, you might have no more serious problem than
simply having asked for the wrong thing.

If you can afford the extra bucks, you might be able to get the full Open
Desktop developer's kit before the unbundled network libraries start selling.
There will be a lot of stuff you won't use, including another copy of the
C compiler, plus X Window and SQL development tools, but the TCP/IP socket
and other libraries are a standard part of this distribution.

Get in touch with SCO, ask for info about their Early Availability Program, 
and tell them you want the ODT developer's kit.

Good luck!
