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 ...
