The volume-header (volhdr) is always the 9th partion on the harddiskt,
(for Linux). It is the same an the 8th partition for the Indy. So
scsi(0)disk(x)rdisk(0)partition(0) has always be 
scsi(0)disk(x)rdisk(0)partition(8), where x is your disk-id from the
disk, where the kernel for booting is saved... 

(I have to update my howto).
