Not sure about booting, but I've got a le/scsi sbus combo card in a
sparcstation 5; it's using le1 rather than the motherboard le0 and has
a second disk on scsibus1; the boot disk is still attached to esp1.

it configs as:

dma1 at sbus0 slot 2 offset 0x81000: rev esc
esp1 at dma1 slot 2 offset 0x80000 level 3 (ipl 5): ESP200, 40MHz, SCSI ID 7
scsibus1 at esp1: 8 targets, 8 luns per target
probe(esp1:0:0): max sync rate 10.00Mb/s
sd3 at scsibus1 targ 0 lun 0: <SEAGATE, ST15230N, 0638> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
sd3: 4095 MB, 3992 cyl, 19 head, 110 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 8386733 sectors
lebuffer0 at sbus0 slot 2 offset 0x40000: 128K memory
le1 at lebuffer0 slot 2 offset 0x60000 level 4 (ipl 7): address 08:00:20:77:06:62
le1: 64 receive buffers, 16 transmit buffers
