Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : MkLinux :
how can I change the SCSI id ?
|When I got a new Mac, it was necessary to change the SCSI id of the
external HD which had my MkLinux files.
On the Mac side, lilo.conf can be accessed from simpletext or from
the "Custom..." button of the MkLinux control panel. My previous
(checked: sd = scsi device, a=scsi id 0, 5 = 5th partition
I changed to
when I changed the SCSI Id from 0 to 4.
Then, on the MkLinux side, I used LinuxDisks and simpletext
to grab, edit, and overwrite /etc/fstab to read:
/dev/sde5 / ext2 rw 1 1
/dev/sde6 none swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sde7 /usr ext2 rw 2 2
/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
and it booted up on my new 7300, using a version of the macOS
without the system enabler...
by the way, anyone know what the last two fields are about?
If I add another parition, say /data, would it be 3 3 ?

|From "man fstab"|
The fifth field, (fs_freq), is used for these filesystems by the dump(8) command to determine which filesystems need to be dumped. If the fifth field is not present, a value of zero is returned and dump will assume that the filesys- tem does not need to be dumped.
