[SunHELP] Solaris 9 & qlogic drivers

Hi Martin,

You're right.  There is an onboard qlogic, and a driver in place.  I'm a bit
hesitant to remove this driver because of the onboard.  The EME
documentation is convinced that I can use Qlogic drivers with a sun
re-branded card.  However, I'm starting to disagree with this.

It looks like maybe your cards are using a Sun OBP driver rather than a
QLogic one, hence SUNW rather than QLGC in the OBP path.

Possibly you should be following a different set of instructions, for a
Sun version of the card.

This could be an OBP version issue, I guess.

Note: I have no direct experience of these cards - these are just
conjectures that may be helpful.
