Ah, cool. I hadn't realized you could set it up like that. Is this in
the FAQ? Actually, perhaps it should be in some "Other Setup" section of
1.1's install document. Something for people who finally have a working
system to consider doing.  ('So You Want to Build a Kernel?')  8)

Can you do the numbering any way you please? Say I had two controllers.
could I number as:

sd10	at scsibus0 target 0 lun ?
sd11	at scsibus0 target 1 lun ?
sd20	at scsibus1 target 0 lun ?
sd21	at scsibus1 target 1 lun ?

Or similar?
