While Linux systems (except for LVM) usually break hard drives up into multiple FDISK partitions, each of which will be a file system, SCO does it quite differently. Most SCO systems have one fdisk partition, and that is divided into up to 7 filesystems or raw divisions.
This difference can be confusing coming from either side, which might be part of the reason behind the difficulties this poster experienced. See Filesystems also.
