2 options : The N1 disk is out of order. Have you tried with a another one ?.
or : with Scsi controler the first disk with SCO must have a SCSI ID = 0 (no jumpers for the address)

Just installed SCO Unix V3.0 on P60 MHz with adaptec 2940 today!  Try this,
1) On Boot up   -->  CTRL <A>  --> Adaptec SCSI Utils
2) Set Host SCSI ID = 0    (Not 7, as  manuals/default settings say!)
3) Link with Adaptec alad Driver
