luser error. I have some old Toshiba 3301/3401 CD-ROM drives. I
thought they had the appropriate mods for 512-byte blocks. They don't.
The one that I thought was working is dead. The 2nd one I worked to
cut the trace on, and cut an extra trace rendering it broken.


Now I'm off to find a proper 512-byte block Sun-bootable CD. This
issue never hit me before because everything I ran was 2.5.1 or later
off these drives, and those kernels (and my later PROM) never made it
an issue. Even though my 2.25 PROM is good with 2048-byte blocks, the
SunOS boot loader is not.
