I've a problem - when the fibre disks are connected
at boot, the boot disk is not given da0 and I cannot boot.
So what I do now is disconnect the fiber disk until boot
is completed, and connect is manually afterwards.

Then I get:

da0 at mpt0 bus 0 scbus3 target 2 lun 0
da0: <IBM-ESXS MAY2073RC T107> Fixed Direct Access SPC-3 SCSI device
da0: Serial Number B399P790FBEG
da0: 300.000MB/s transfers
da0: Command Queueing enabled
da0: 70006MB (143374000 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 8924C)

da1 at isp0 bus 0 scbus2 target 0 lun 5
da1: <COMPAQ MSA1000 VOLUME 4.32> Fixed Direct Access SPC-2 SCSI device
da1: Serial Number P56350GX3RX04Z
da1: 200.000MB/s transfers WWNN 0x500805f3000ec220 WWPN 0x500805f3000ec221 PortID 0x10000
da1: Command Queueing enabled
da1: 140011MB (286744185 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 17849C)

How can I set in /boot/device.hints that the MSA1000
disk is da1 and IBM is the boot disk da0?
