just to clarify things, this is only valid for the sun4[cdm] architechture
(and probably related to the openboot revision). all sun4u machines by
default boot from SCSI ID 0.

the best way to handle booting from multiple disks is to find the correct
disk with show-disks-all, and then devaliasing those entries. you can then
use the aliases with the boot command, and even use them for default booting.
