Hmm...  It's working great now with Solaris 7, no problems at all.
I assume maybe the install was issuing a SCSI command or something
it didn't like?

Unfortunatelly for me, I don't have enough space to put 500MB for each
share, plus 1.5GB for /usr

I wish I had a larger drive - this is the largest SCSI drive I have (well, I got a 1991AV,
but I'd rather NOT use that for a production machine that's not related to multimedia).

And how much RAM do you have?  ;-)
