in SCSI-cases true, it's the id which determines the boot-drive
normally you could only boot from drives with id 0 or 1 (i know this
correctly from DOS, but not from linux)

IIRC this depends on the motherboard-bios which could only manage 2

(i don't know if board's with EIDE-controllers can handle 4 boot-drives)

until next mail ;)
