On a vax it can be any device and does not have to be the first.
Typically device
6 or 7 is reserved to the host other than that anything goes.

Mine boots DUA3 {3} on the MVII and DKA500 {5} on the 3100m76 and the
it can be DKBnnn {100,200,300 or 400} as that one has different bootable
version on each disk.
