" On the CD DVD support pretty much any SCSI version will work, make sure you
" set to ID 6 for booting and on DVD you will have to set to 512 byte block size
" on older DVDs to boot, but later should have that sorted I guess. Sun updated
" their firmware on the early SCSI DVDs to auto select the block size, not sure
" if this was just to boot CDs or DVDs as well.

yes, old cdrom drives too.  the oldest don't even have jumpers.

at some point a blocksize command was included in the cd/dvd command
standard, and sun finally added it to obp booting - in obp3 iirc.
