Hmm, okay. This wasn't immediately clear from the man page.
However, upon rereading it, I see that the image is put in the first
partition, making it `a'. It was somewhat coincidence that I suppplied
enough boot codes in order to put the sparc64 code in `f'. It would be
interesting to try putting the sparc64 code in a different partition
and supply a matching .slicemap (or a .cdtoc) as somebody else had
mentioned. If that works, it may solve the conflict with sun3x.
