If the Plextor in question has a jumper to set the block size, and you set
it to 512 rather than 2048, it will almost certainly boot a Sun,  I
understand that Suns later than mine (LXes and Classics) will even boot from
2048-block CD-ROMs, but I don't know the exact value for "later."

There is room in a 411 case for a Plextor 20X CD-ROM drive and a 68-to-50
convertor; that's the way I had one set up for my LX.  Worked fine.
