Under the BOOT prompt (ok prompt), do probe-scsi
I think SS5's and up came with probe-scsi-all (at least I had
that when I had my SPARCbook).
And you'd do a boot -r do add new devices like a tape or cdrom, but supposedly
you can add a disk without rebooting no problem - quite contrary to
what I was taught...
