I don't think I ever sent out a summary...
Here was my initial query:
I have a Sparcstation with 2 207 Mbyte disks.
On the second disk, I want to have / and swap.
On the first disk, I have a smaller /, swap and usr (I always want to use the same /usr).
I recall older suns let me boot off other devices via >b sd(0,1,0)
However, these ROMS don't like that...
I tried all types of combinations...and it has to be exactly right...
I have rom rev 2.2...
When I try >b /sbus/esp/sd@1,0
it tells me: the file just loaded and returns with the boot prompt...
Is it a problem to break of / and /usr between disks?

Some different opinions, sun roms generally have changed with time.
The major things I found out:
Do a >boot diskn to boot over disk n...
There is a magic program installboot (in /usr/kvm/mdec/installboot)
The -v option (supposedly) just prints out what it will do
Of course, source would be very nice... ;-)
Let me know if you want a complete summary...it's long.
