No. It hangs on whatever the last drive is. For example, if I have a 
hard drive and a cd-rom it displays ad0... for the hard drive and then 
will hang on the cdrom (after displaying acd0...). With just the hard 
drive it hangs on the drive. If I try a hard drive and two cd-roms it 
hangs on the last cdrom drive. I haven't yet determined if "last" is 
equivalent to "slave".
