As stated in another message, I also think that SCSI ID 3 is the boot 
drive. I have a couple of 3/80s (one works) and I remember the install 
used sd(0,18,0) which I thought was odd. I guess I still do.

In any case, I will fire up the working 3/80 with SunOS 4.0.3 if I can 
find anything that'd help. I also have original 1/4" tapes with 4.0.3 on 
them. Do I remember that there was a difference between a 3/60 and a 
3/80 that would prevent my OS from working on a 3/80??
