You're probably right, SCSI controllers are probably a much *better
known* way to go if you can find a compatible SCSI controller.  I
haven't ever tried adding a SATA controller into a SPARC system.  The
problem with the SCSI route is that parallel-SCSI drives are all but
unobtainable these days except used or reconditioned.  And you know any
reconditioned drive has already failed at least once...
