I have a Crimson I've been trying to get up and running. I had set it

Invariably, I get a file not found trying to boot -f
dksc(0,4,8)sash.IP17 (or variations). ls dksc(0,4,8) and dksc(0,4,7)
also gets an: ls file not found.
I'm thinking I might have a termination error (altough hinv does show
both the cdrom and harddisk). Should the SCSI connectors at the bottom
be connected together or terminated or?
