[rescue] Hard disk lifespans in Sun gear

The controller board on the drive failed. I see it fairly regularly on 
the older Seagate drives, the old 4g FWD drives they use in HP 9K 
equipment (the Chrome Domes) are notorious around here for doing it, and 
I've seen a few on the FC model of that particular 9g drive. If you're 
feeling clever and don't want to go through all the hoops to replace it 
again, you can try moving the controller board from a working ST39173WC 
onto that drive. That's usually worked for me, YMMV however.
