Oh, then you may not be able to use anything but a genuine Sun drive.
Not because it's different or doesn't work, but to prevent finger pointing....

That should be real easy then. Solaris 10 removed the 512 byte block
requirment. Solaris 9 may have, I don't know, anyone else?

If you have a machine that you can spare for a few days, why not buy
a drive and try it. If it works, you're set. If not, you can raffle/auction
it off to the staff. :-)
