By my knowledge :::
LVD Drives have no terminators on them.  611 cases are auto-terminating.
Seagate LVD drives may have to be jumpered fo the "force SE" setting to
the SS20 will support 9/18/36Gig drives, it's whether the OS will supportthe
disk size / partition sizes as large as you can make on such a disk.

I have run a Seagate 39103LC in a SS20 myself, worked like a champ under
Solaris 7 and Solaris 8.
I currently have a Quantum atlas V 18.3 Gig running in a SS5/70 under
Solaris 2.6 or 7 (can't remember which...) with nary a hiccup...  Both have
the "force SE" jumpers set.
