Worst case scenario if you do not have an option to either
format/label the drive in the box it is in, and/or you have no other
Sun box to do said operation in, you can use a linux box to format it
with the UFS file system and give it a Sun disk label.  It is a fairly
easy way to do it in an emergency (personal experience).
