Iirc, they are daisy chainable (I used to have many of these attached
to E6000's and similar; I can't find any reference on the Sun docs
sight that verifies one way or another, though).  HVD should support
up to 14 IDs on the bus--you just need to make sure that the IDs are
set properly in the RSM.

As for cracking the disk cannisters open, you need a nylon tool like
they use for cracking open laptops.
