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?
