did you try "dksc(0,1,8)initrd", too? that's what i use to boot sashARCS and fx
from a certain partition at least ("PROM syntax" vs. your "ARCS syntax" afaik).
(0 being the controller, 1 the drive number and 8 the partition) 

anyway "scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)" won't work, because you have 
specified a disk and rdisk. shouldn't this read "scsi(0)disk(1)partition(8)"?
