While I realize size DOES matter, I find it hard to believe that the cache 
size could influence an OS install so much - it should be mainly dumping files 
from the CD onto the HD (I would think)...

The IDE on the AXe is the same as on Ultra 5 and 10, so that shouldn't be a 
factor, but then again, I can't recall how long the install of Solaris 10 on 
an Ultra 10 took the last time I did this... Hmmm.

On a related topic, anyone have ideas on the fan sensors on the AXe? While in 
the OpenBoot it complains about the case and system fans, both of which would 
be case-mounted. Can I turn off the check for the fans, or how would I go 
about getting proper fans for the case? (Are they standard parts? What is 
known to work?)
