For what it is worth, I had a 3/160 board that would not boot right
off target ID=1.  I think I could fool it by using b sd(0,16,0)
or some such, but then it wasn't consistent with the OS when it
was running.  It turned out that a newer rev of the boot rom fixed
the problem (I had several 3/160 boards and tried a newer, rev 3.0
rom on a hunch since all this didn't make sense).  Now it boots
target 1 fine as sd(0,8,0) - well actually now I boot sd(), but I
thought this might be worth mentioning in case someone else falls
into the same hole.  I think the buggy rom was rev 2.6. 

One nice thing about the older rom was that it had more diagnostics
and an actual help screen when you typed 'h', I guess they dumped that
to make room for something else.
