[SunHELP] Disk Drives for Ultra 10

I am running Solaris 2.6 not by choice, vendor requirement.  Solaris 9
installs no problem.  I can get 2.6 to install and see a 20gb drive, but when
it reboots it gets a corrupt label.  It does the same thing if I use the 120gb
drive, although it only sees 17gb of the 120gb drive.  I am interested in how
you can specify it manually?  I have not done that before or would know where
to do that at.

" Sounds like you may be running Solaris 2.6 which has the 8GB limitation.

its autodetect does, but you can specify up to 64h/255s/16383c

enter the geometry by hand.  fudge it if/when necessary.  ide drives
don't really have 16h/64s anyway.
