If I've read the thred correctly, you've moved this disk from the top
bay to the bottom, having removed a bad disk from the bottom..
put this disk back in the top, leave the bottom empty, and do your
"boot disk1" from the OBP prompt.. bet that will work.. the disk
thinks it has to look for the slices in the old position according to
/etc/vfstab and you've moved it to a different scsi address..
