my 1st thought too, and let's hope.  but i set up a system like this
in the mid '90s, with s2.4 on 1 disk and sunos4.1.4 on the other, and
the disks were so small [sun0424s iirc] i had them share /usr on 1 and
/var on the other, as well as small swap slices on each.

at least it looks like the nvram batt is still good!
