" Suns starting with some PROM version support switching the CD-ROM
" blocksize to 512 programmatically
ultrasparcs and obp 3
" and these newer ones can use mostly any SCSI CD-ROM device.
many/most of the oldest drives lack the blocksize mode select command
it started to change in the mid '90s
i've wondered if the command could be added to obp 2 nvramrc
