Not a real guru, but: you might try SHO DEV at the chevron. My
4000VLC could be set to boot from a device (like the ethernet) that's
not working, and I'm not so sure it would necessarily spin the hard
drive if it wasn't trying to boot from it. SHO DEV seems to do that,
though, as well as telling whether the drive electronics are
correctly describing it over the SCSI cable, SCSI is working, etc.

Is that available on a 3100? Gurus? Anyone there?
