Hello gurus,

Thanks for all the replies. In general, the question number 1 got the
most answer. Basicly, we can have up to 7 SCSI devices hook up with a
single controller. As I didn't point out in my question but some people
replied with the answers that for SunOS 4 I should rebuild the kernel to
take effect if I need to use ID 4 and 5 for disks.

For the second question, no one has a clear answer for that.

Again thanks to the following:

Mike Frisch
Matthew Stier
Dave Staggs
David Wolfskill
Jason Keltz
Chris Marble
Stefan Voss
Rich Kulawiec
