Which CPU has the bad fan?

Solaris 8 V240 with 2 CPU's. Both CPU fans work and both pump out air but I keep getting this message on the console:

SC Alert: CPU_FAN @ MB.P0.F0.RS has FAILED.


How can I tell which CPU this message is talking about?

prtdiag -v gave:

PS0            FF_FAN      okay        
PS1            FF_FAN      okay        
---------------------------------

I didn't actually test the fan, a co-worker did. Is this the fan on the CPU or some other fan because prtdiag -v  not showing any speed

This is a CPU fan.

Is the "PS0            FF_FAN      okay      " the power supply fan"?

I only have two CPU'S. Why do I have four of these?
MB/P0/F0       RS          failed   0            
MB/P0/F1       RS          okay     16463            
MB/P1/F0       RS          okay     17307            
MB/P1/F1       RS          okay     16875    

What does FO stand for as in :

F0             RS          okay     5672    

And waht does "RS" stand for as in :

SC Alert: CPU_FAN @ MB.P0.F0.RS has FAILED.

I know somebody is going to ask me to explain this :) Thanks
