IIRC, you're telling the machine to boot from controller 0, disk 0, slice 1.
if your disk has SCSI id 3, then you'd tell it to boot from the swap partition
(remember, OpenBoot starts counting at 0). but

that looks like your disk does not have SCSI id 3. use the command
"probe-scsi" to find out what SCSI id your disk has, and then boot with
sd(0,id here,0).

a small warning: OpenBoot changes SCSI id 0 and 3 around. this is some old
backwards-compat hack, but be aware of it. so:
	id 0		sd(0, 3, 0)
	id 1		sd(0, 1, 0)
	id 2		sd(0, 2, 0)
	id 3		sd(0, 0, 0)
	id 4		sd(0, 4, 0)

this has changed in later OpenBoot revisions (starting with the Ultras?), but
all the old sun4[cm] machines have that behaviour.
