Help with sparc 5

It should be something like /iommu/sbus/espdma/sd_at_3,0:a [1] (that's from memory
so there are some other numbers missing, but it should be close...they aren't
important numbers anyway as there's only 1 iommu, sbus, and espdma in the
system :)

what's the exact error you're getting as it's trying to boot?

[1] sd_at_3,0 is the bottom SCA drive slot. sd_at_1,0 is the top (I believe). if
the boot disk is in the top slot try moving it to the bottom.
