I know it used to be quite bad, but there were ways to improve IDE performance, IIRC (adjusting parameters) - any limits on HD size & speed? (Largest boot drive installed, and what is IDE interface speed on U5/10 - 33, 66, 100, or greater?

Its only ATA66, but you should be able to use any HD under 127G just fine as
long as you've got the latest OBP firmware installed.  I had an 80G drive in
ohno.mrbill.net when it was an Ultra 5 running Solaris 9, and it worked
just fine.
