Dual head settings on Ultra 1's?

In order to get the second screen on a dual-head Ultra 1 to use 1280x1024, I
have to set the console variable nvramrc to:

	probe-all
	: vsetup "
117000000,71691,67,16,112,224,1280,2,8,33,1024,COLOR,0OFFSET" ;
	vsetup 3
	" /sbus/cgsix at 1" " override" execute-device-method drop
	install-console
	banner

The problem is, on seemingly identical workstations, the parameter to the
vsetup value changes. Often it is 3 but sometimes it needs 6 or even 7. What
exactly does this value refer to and how can I predict it without having to
resort to the trial and error technique previously employed?

Many thanks for any assistance.
