Since my reply to your mail did not go to the list either, here a short
summary. And something about Solaris I did not mention.
You are right. I modified my silo.conf and inittab - booting from sdd, now it
works - if I switch on my disk array.
I am not verry happy with this behaviour.
Regarding Solaris: In my opinion the default boot disk for Solaris is SCSI ID
3. I could not check today, as far as I remember I can plug an additional
SCSI disk with ID 0 to a Solaris machine (Ultra 2) without problems. With
Linux, this doesn't work.
If this is true, we have different behaviour with Linux and Solaris. I am not
happy with this ...
