Procedure&nbsp;12.2: Setting the Disk Order

Two remarks, opportunities for improvement:
1) The explanation states: "If your computer has more than one hard disk, you
can specify the boot sequence of the disks"

- What is the effect of this setting?
- Does it determine where e.g. the 'generic code for the MBR' is saved?
- What happens when the disk order in BIOS is: 1) sda, 2) sdb and in this
dialog the user puts it the other way around? Does it harm, becomes booting
slower or perhaps impossible?
- In case the system has a duplex disk setup (RAID-1), including swap; is it
possible with this option to save the bootloader at for example disk sda and
sdb separately (by running yast/bootloader twice?

2) The explanation states:
- Open the Boot Code Options tab.
- Click Boot Loader Installation Details --> This must be: 'edit disk boot
order', see screenshot above the explanation as well
