kernel panic, unable to mount root fs? or similar?
jumper settings are particular to each model/series of hard drive.  search
the manufacturer's web site for the models you have.
just make sure that all scsi devices have different numbers on them
the command 'probe-scsi' at the boot prom will tell you what is present
and usually hangs if there is more than one device with the same ID -- a
slightly quicker way to find out if you have this problem.
