I unplugged the SCSI connector from sd0 and booted the system up again.
It booted up fine with the failed component errors. So sd1 is fine. 

What can I do to further narrow down the problem. Apparantly it's sd0
and it could be during the write process that caused the Multiple disks
error. I get the feeling that if I repeat building sd0 as the spare,
I'll get the same errors.
