(From the Sun SD(4S) man page)

     disk sd0 at scsibus0 target 3 lun 0
     disk sd1 at scsibus0 target 1 lun 0
     disk sd2 at scsibus0 target 2 lun 0
     disk sd3 at scsibus0 target 0 lun 0

(End Man page excerpt)

At least with c1d6s0 I know the Scsi id of the device I'm talking to. On single
controller machines I'd be happy enough with sd0 - If that really meant SCSI
disk 0!

On multiple controller machines c1d6s0 is much better
