Will the drive start at a "probe-scsi" from the PROM prompt? IIRC, that
should sent the start command.

"START ON COMMAND ENABLE (J1-PINS 3 & 4) - PRESENT WHEN SHIPPED
When removed, the spindle motor will start only on receipt of the Start Unit
Anyway, I've tried it with that both shorted and not, and the bloody drive
still won't spin up under normal circumstances, only when the test jumper is
enabled. Is there a way to get the SS2 PROM to explicitly send the Start
Unit SCSI Command? Thanks,
