The GENERIC kernel for sun4c architecture is only set up for disks on
targets 0-3, unit 0 (which is the only unit supported by embedded SCSI
drives).  Set the Emulex for target 0, 1, or 2, and the drives to units
0 and 1, and the IPX kernel should see the drive on unit 0.  After
finishing with that one, exchange the unit settings to set up the other
