->First problem:
->  So far the only comm utility that I can get  to work on my Xenix/286 machine
->is cu.  But how do you use sz or rz (zmodem) commands from within cu?  I've
->tried many different methods, but none seem to work.  

To use rz and sz from cu:  (ttyxx is the port you are dialed out on)
To upload a file:

type at host prompt:
then type:
~$ sz </dev/ttyxx

To download a file:

type at host prompt:
then type:
~$ rz </dev/ttyxx

->Second Problem:
->  I tried to get pcomm to work on my system and when it compiles it always 
->ends up with a passle of unresolved externals that I haven't been able 
->resolve.  i.e. why are they unresolved, and how do i fix them.

to compile pcomm on xenix (excerpts from Makefile):

#for SCO Xenix
CURSES = -ltinfo -lx
TERMLIB = -ltinfo -lx
TTY = tty_att.o
