Summary: SPARCstation 1 Disk

The original problem: Our SS1 could not read it's disk.

The solution: Smack it.

        The overwhelming majority of respondents indicated that I should
take the drive out and tap it lightly. Apparently the heads have a
tendency to get stuck in the parked position when the machine is powered off.
I am very happy to say that this worked, and I didn't even lose a single
byte of data.

        Thank you very much to all those who replied.
