how to boot

Dear Listmembers,
I started the installation of SARGE in the meantime, and, after helpful
hints from Joshua Kwan the installation proceeds. I had had cleaned the
harddrive entirely prior to the installation and had the installer
automatically set up the disk.

parted tells me now:

Disc label type: sun
1	0	8313	ext3	boot
2	8313	8705	linux-swap
what sounds right.

Now, when it comes to the SUN boot-prompt, I say

boot disk3:1 and it fails.
if I say disk:1 it fails. I tried millions of combinations. Any ideas? I
always get "Can't open boot device"

Not to forget: I am using a U60. OpenBoot 3.23 / 512M of ram installed. The
scsi-id of the HDD is 3 (as shown from parted).

Many thanks for your help in advance,
take care
