[SunRescue] OT: plextor CDROM drive

This should be a 4x drive, and it should (as all pextors do) boot Suns just
fine. I have
no exp. w/SGI hardware but I believe this drive should boot that as well.

There will be a jumper on the back to set the block size, set it to 512 byte
blocks, not
2048 byte.

Plextor has manuals for similar-era drives at:
