Suns starting with some PROM version support switching the CD-ROM 
blocksize to 512 programmatically and these newer ones can use mostly 
any SCSI CD-ROM device.

Does anyone know about SGI-s - can newer ones use any SCSI CD-ROM and do 
the sector size switch? If yes, which models need 2k sector CD-ROM and 
which models can take any?
