" " Solaris 2.5.1 can address 1tb disks, so I wouldn't worry too much
" " about disks not being recognized.  At worst case, you may have to
" " define fake disk geometry for SunOS 4.1.x, but that's not too hard.
" there's even progs out there that will probe-scsi and [almost] make
" one for you.  and there's a massive canonical format.dat which
" probably already has the entry you need, on the net somewhere too.

forgot to add: joerg schilling's sformat, which compiles/runs on
sunos4 and autodetects disk geometry.
