[SunHELP] Disk format

Does anyone know how to change the disk format of a drive that's been 
used in an A1000?  Seems like that makes fewer cylinders available than 
the same drive in a Sun system like an Ultra 60.  I tried doing the 
low-level format (format command, format sub-command) but that didn't 
change anything.

I'd like the disk (Seagate SCSI 9GB) to have the same number of 
cylinders as the other one, for Disksuite disk mirroring.
