>dmesg says "sd0 at scsibus0 target 6" so your disk ID is six, isn't it?

	You are absolutely correct!  For some reason I was 
confused... something that embarasses me specially since dmesg's 
output is almost in perfect solaris lingo.  Shame on me!  Anyway, I 
then tried the SCSI ID = 6 and all seems to be well:

Testing memories: done.

Ok, almost as I think the password I gave it is not what I thought. 
Not that it really matters as the HD in the machine (a 3 1/2" HH 1GB 
one) will be replaced with the 3GB 5 1/4" FH one I mentioned in the 
beginning of this thread.  Will it be smarter to have its ID = 0? 
Also, if I set the jumper 5 to autoboot (on), would I see that 
happening in console or I will just have to have faith *or* I need to 
boot as above (manually)?

	I am pretty excited now =)
