Yesterday, I asked:

>What is the eeprom setting to boot ("boot-from") a Sparc 1+
>from sd1a? Thanks.

Thanks for quick answers to:

There are a couple of ways of going at this:

o From multi- or single-user mode (to make the change permanent,
        which is what I wanted):

        root# eeprom boot-from=sd\(0,1,\)

        (Note the escaped paren's)

o From the boot prompt:

>b sd(0,1,0)

        (This does not make the change permanant, however)

unixname2bootname(8) will convert a device name to a boot
device name, as in:

unix% /usr/kvm/unixname2bootname sd1a
