I was wondering about that, and I'll have to use it anyway soon because my SGI
Indigo2 right next to it uses a 512k blocksize for it's EFS formatted cds (and
i have to burn some IRIX backups).  But if I burned some cds on the Sun box
with a 512k blocksize, would they be readable on a PC?  The blocksize wasn't a
big issue with my sparc5 (worked fine with the 2048 setting).
